Guess who's signed up for a race :)

There's quite a bit of loony c25kers running antics going on at the moment... Increasing distances, races being run and signed up for, ideas floating about for a C25k running meet and the joining of running clubs! Actual proper local running clubs for people that run.. :)

I have news too... Signed up for my first 5k race :) a race for life 15 Jul in Derby... :)

I'll be running with my best friend Emma, the one who is responsible for encouraging me and getting me to try running by showing me the C25k podcasts.

makes ya smile this place doesn't it :)

  • Well done you! I'm doing a corporate challenge on 11 July (Battersea Park) with colleagues from work.

    I am loving this forum & the encouragement from everyone for whatever your challenge is! Still smiling and think will be for a while yet :)

  • Ooooh, you Star! Well done :-)

  • Good another C25K-er doing the race for life its such great news.

  • Brilliant news Bxster. And we know we won't be alone in the training. :)

  • Great stuff! I'm doing the RFL in Manchester the week after yours, on 22 July, already been running in the tshirt for motivation :)

  • Yay! Good for you! Me too! 4th July in Blackpool!

  • He he its amazing how much some light hearted peer pressure can achieve!

  • Well done Bxster

    Every little step is a step further forward down the running road, literally. I hope you have a great run...what are you planning after that?


  • Good luck Bxster. In a very good cause. Makes you feel so much better being able to run it than walk.

    Thinking but only thinking at the moment of doing a park run....

  • It certainly does!:) well done and don't forget to post a link to your fundraising page ;) I certainly have caught the bug and am looking forward to race for life on Sunday and then who knows...........................

  • That's great Bxster! :)

  • Well done on signing up for the Race For Life!!! I do this race every year but have always walked it.... This year is the year that I'm running it!! Mines on the 10th June and I'm really hoping that it goes well considering I'm injured at the mo - which is extremely frustrating!!! Good luck with it, cancer research needs us cos without event such as the Race For Life we wouldn't be able to kick cancer in the a$$!!!

  • Well done for signing up to such a good cause. As lucylou says cancer research needs every penny possible. My OH is a survivor. :)

  • then I add your OH to our list of family and friends affected we are running for; best friends mum currently having chemotherapy and radiotherapy, my uncle the currently undergoing the same at the moment, my gran had cancer, my aunt is a breast cancer survivor, sadly best friends friend lost fight a couple of weeks ago. x
