Posts Tagged ‘10k’

Okay, well I’ve mentioned it already and now it’s becoming very real. I really am about to start training for a marathon. And throw in a 5k, a 10k and a half marathon in the meanwhile. My family has been affected by cancer more than once and I want celebrate the fact that those closest to me have come out the other end of treatments and surgery, and are still living happy lives, and luckily I’ve found a good friend with her own desires to give something back to Cancer Research.

Except, me and my running friend Heather have decided to try and put a little twist on things by running our races around the world. We’re starting with the Race for Life 5k in Hyde Park in July, then the idea is to do a 10k potentially in North Africa (still pending) before hitting a half marathon on the Great Wall of China. To top it all off – we’re really set on getting to Jamaica for the Reggae Marathon. Because, well, if you’re going to run a marathon, why not do it on a beautiful island with beaches you can collapse on afterwards?

But we can’t do this alone – we need all the support we can get. We’re both raising money (hopefully we’ll manage to merge our two sites together, but for now if you can, please donate here: http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/fillingthepages) and we’re looking for any and all kinds of sponsors to help us along the way. We’ve already been contacted by a few experiences runners and a nutritionist who’s going to take away all our biscuits and chocolate (aahhh) but if you know of anyone, or if you yourself think you might be able to help us in some way, then please get in touch.

We’d love to try out new training programmes, fitness gear, anything really! If you happen to own a plane that could take us to China and Jamaica…well that’d be just fine too.

Most of all, we need lots of encouragement, so please keep checking back to hear how I’m doing, comment, donate, and if you want to join us in any or all of our runs, even better.
