The alphabet of runs

When I came up with my stupid idea and set this website up, I wasn’t thinking big enough. I know that seems hard to believe, but a chat with a new running friend introduced me to the idea of an alphabet of marathons. This fabled friend of a friend managed it in 4 years, so I reckon it is a grand addition to my challenge. This page is https://26commit.com/and-26 and it is the place where my alphabet will be built and checked off
