# πkm running challenge: 21-day round up

I’m still going! Two-thirds of the way through my epic running binge, and I’ve managed to keep it up every day so far. Since my last round-up on 7th, I’ve run another πkm each day, and my fundraising total is now at 22%, which is over £700 (and if you didn’t notice, that sentence just contained ’22’, ‘over’ and ‘7’).

If I can make it to £1000 before the end of the month, I’ll be pretty pleased! Donate at pikm.run, or see below for my daily sweaty photos/videos/instagram posts.

I also managed to get in a few more joint runs with running companions:

I was also given an amazing gift by maths/knitting fan Linda Pollard, who came to see me perform at a show. She’s written up the knit of these magnificent π/sum gloves on a Ravelry page. I took the opportunity to test out their warmness on my next outdoor run:

This mild cry for help resulted in plenty of nice replies on Twitter, which has been a real boost – including Aperiodichum Colin Beveridge, who pointed out that my total is around $\pi^4$, a pleasing coincidence.

And of course, today’s effort:

Running continues. Watch this space for a final wrap-up and fundraising total at the end of the month.
