I have signed myself up to run a half marathon on June 30th this year, in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
I am going to run 13 miles without stopping. At 9am, on a Sunday. I also plan to do this within a highly respectable time limit.
I really needed something achievable to aim for in my life, and since it would seem I can’t rely on my mind alone for achievable goals, (damn thing keeps wanting what it can’t have, like ‘a graduate job’…) I’ve decided to rely on a combination of willpower and physical hard work instead. I am currently 10 days into my training programme, running distances of around 4 miles and keeping up an average pace of around 8 mins 50 secs per mile. So far, So good.
AND, I received this present from the charity today;
which means I never have to worry about getting run over while I train (/trampled by sheep if I collapse halfway).
I am genuinely quite excited about this whole thing. If anyone happens to be feeling like a charitable and amazing individual, you can sponsor me here.
I would be massively grateful for any donation, no matter how small. :)
