Hello lovely running people and welcome to Week One of the August Quest!
🙂 I hope you all managed to find some cool shady places to run over the last few days. It has certainly been pretty hot here in the south and much as I like a little sunshine☀️, I am definitely more of a cold, windy weather runner!
This is my first time hosting The Quest, so please be gentle with me while I find my feet! I have much to learn, I'm sure, but I bring plenty of enthusiasm, lots of running shoes (!) plus a fair few miles and am really looking forward to hearing about your running journeys as we set off on another month of adventure!
I am currently enjoying having a little extra time to dedicate to all things running related before we all return to school in September.🤞
I know many of you will have taken part in the Quest before but for those who are newly arrived on the Bridge Forum, the next bit is just for you....!
What is the Quest?
The aim of the Quest is to help you find a focus or goal that you would like to achieve by the end of the Quest period.
This Quest will run all the way through August.
You can join at any point during that time.
Some popular goals are:
• To run three times a week
• To slowly increase distance - maybe you are following ju-ju's Magic Plan?
• To add Stretch and Strength exercises to your weekly routine
• To improve pace
• To try out some new running routes
It's completely up to you - set yourself an achievable goal and have fun with it!

If you want to join the Quest, all you have to do is comment below with something like:
I would like to join the Quest or My goal this month...
Every week in August I will put up a new post and we can all chat about how we are doing, share tips, and motivate each other.
🏃🏽♀️My own Quest for August is to continue to work on my hills. This will (I hope) help me:
a) Get better at running up steep hills!!🤞
b) Improve my speed...a little bit (keeping it realistic!😉).
So please join in - let me know how things are going and what your goal or quest for the month is.
Good luck and good running!
Sandraj39 and the Bridge to 10K team.🙂
