OMFG! I have signed myself up for the Cancer Research Shine Night Walk on the 26th September 2015, which is a full walking marathon!
I was motivated to do this for 2 reasons…
- I watched the Manchester 10k this afternoon and events like this never fail to inspire me.
- I wanted to do something in memory of mum and whilst running isn’t my thing, I really like walking and so this event is a perfect fit.
M and I did the Shine Manchester Marathon (walking) in 2011 and it was really bloody hard, but the pain of that has faded and now more than ever, it seems like the right time. By my reckoning, I have got about 4 1/2 months to train myself from being about to walk comfortable about 2-3 miles to 10 times that many. Phew. I must be mad.
Anyway, if you do fancy sponsoring me, you can do so by giving the button below a click!
To help me along, I am going to blog my training and progress and so you can follow it all with me. I know it’s going to be hard, but it can’t be any harder than what my mum went through. Can it?!
