Hi all you lovely people,
I promised I'd give regular updates on how I am doing with running the year in support of Alzheimer's Research. Well by end of January I had run 125.37 km, with only 1892.63 to go! Within the month I also ran my first ever 15km, and one day managed 21km in two runs (but that was stupid, immature, painful and I won't be doing that ever again)
Thanks to some help and advice on the Marathon hub from our usual array of supportive people (you know who you are!), I have some different ideas on how to take the challenge up. The usual C25K mantra of slow and steady, applies. I am trying to do a mini streak of limited kms each day to see how that works out and February is a test month, when I will try out various runs and distances. But so far, so good.
Today I took out Mr Smooth, to see the sights of London and collect three red squares on my Monopoly challenge. We did it and my write up is here:-
I had forgotten though that today was also the Winter Run in aid of Cancer Research and whilst I almost gatecrashed their event, I'd like to wish all the runners the very best for their run.
Coincidentally a street artist had chalked the Monopoly Board onto Trafalgar Square where the runners would be coming.
Thanks for all the support and good wishes from you all, it helps my motivation no end. And thank you to the anonymous C25Ker, who has donated to my fundraising. I can't tell you how delighted I am with that. I don't know which lovely person you are, but thank so very, very much.
