In the absence of our friend the good Mr. Stylish
... the usual thread starter ... I thought I'd make next year's hang out with a week before the runners leave the starting blocks
Having a distance target to aim for is great motivation - hopefully there'll be the usual suspects, and all new comers would be very welcome.
1000 miles is the typical target but absolutely not compulsory... any target (longer or shorter) is fine!
BTW - I'm in for, hopefully, somewhere around 1200 again for 2018.
