I've been wanting to enter a 5K charity race for a while, as the last one I entered I had to pull out of due to injury.
I had an email from Bromley Mencap telling me about a Doitforcharity.com 5K race in Regents Park, London, in which there will be 1500 runners dressed as Superheroes. I am a registered childminder and I'm on the Mencap childminding network, giving parents a much needed break by looking after their child with special needs for a few hours each month. Funds are always needed for this charity, to pay for childminders, training and events throughout the year for the children. I've posted off my registration this morning, the event is on May 19th.
I've also been considering entering a 10k as I've been increasing my distance lately (managed 9K yesterday) and received details of a 10k at Bedgebury Forest, on June 8th raising funds for MacMillan Cancer Support. So I've just registered for this too.
After Yesterday's long run I'm a bit achy today, so my next run tomorrow (or maybe Thursday) will be a slow steady 5k, Parkrun on Saturday and next week I'm going to start B210K with Samantha Murphy.
