I love running.
I love the headspace it gives me and it keeps me fit. I credit running with helping me, along with Noom, to lose over 20lb since December last year.
This summer I ran/walked my first 10k race (just over 6 miles) since the little people were born. I ran to raise money for The Lullaby Trust and in memory of little Matilda Mae. I loved it, finished in a personal best time and raised £340 – almost £100 over my target! Afterwards I wrote my top tips for preparing for and running your first 10k race.
Why not further? I thought.
So I’ve set myself a new challenge – to run for 10 miles. Well, not exactly run, but run/walk. Hey it still counts!
So here I am, preparing to take part in the Stebbing 10 mile race on Remembrance Sunday in November. I thought I’d share my journey with you, my training plans, my gear and my thoughts and feelings about running. I hope you’ll join me on my countdown to 10 miles!
