Day 34 & just over 1 month into my 3000km challenge. I am 42.57km ahead of my target having run 322.05km but have a long way to go. I’m pleased but also mindful to remain injury free, especially as I have another ski trip coming up and want to be at least 60km ahead of my target before leaving. Sore running legs, icy roads and sore ski legs means I’ll have to try extra hard. The support is great and I can’t get enough of it.
If you or someone you know would like to run with me for a day or a specific event please get in contact.
I’d like to say a big thank you to all of those people and companies that have supported me throughout this first month. And a special mention to all of you that have donated. I can’t say how grateful and thankful I am. When i reach my target at the end of the year and i can say we’ve raised at least £10,000 will be a fantastic feeling. Below is a snapshot of Month 1 January.
The London Winter Run – http://winterrunseries.co.uk/events/london-winter-run
My first event of the year for Cancer Research. It was a gentle start to the year so I could build up my pace – now though, the training and events are more frequent and the 100km ultra in September is looming over me. Can’t wait really.
My first 10k of the year and i was hoping for PB time of anything less than 38mins, unfortuntly i ran 39:38 on sore and tied legs. I met some great people and the atmosphere was incredible. Fitness First did a fun warm up and i managed to meet 2014 European gold medalist Jo Pavey at the start. (http://joannepavey.com/)
Here are some of the photos from a fantastic day:
Support & Sponsorship from some big names:
Today I received some fantastic offers from companies that would like to support my challenge, my journey this year and the charities that i’m representing.
Adidas have agreed to provide some support after seeing my posts on twitter; I’ll be speaking with them shortly. You may notice that i’m a big Adidas fan and most of my running tops are theirs. So i look forward to speaking with Adidas and see what they can offer me.
