My 5 Week Challenge

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

I'm the biggest non-runner in the world. I hate it so much, I used to walk around cross country at school and refused to run for buses/trains/tubes. However, at the start of 2012, it was the biggest ambition of mine to do the Race For Life. Now like most families theses days, mine has been unfortunately affected by cancer. My Auntie caught her cervical cancer late because she didn't pick up the signs, but luckily after a tough battle she has pulled through. And more recently my other Auntie has sadly been diagnosed with her second bout of breast cancer. This has made me more determined than ever to run and to raise as much money as I can.

From the title of this post, I have 5 weeks until the big day. I'm running at Clapham Common on the 4th July for the 5km race. I know you can walk, jog or run the distance, and I could easily walk it as I walk that distance to and from work somedays. Though I want to push myself and attempt to run it. I also think this will generate more donations from friends and family as they know my relationship with running. 

This means that over the next 5 weeks. I will be keeping you posted on my efforts. Let me know if you have joined the Race for Life 2012 :)
