Run Done!

*Please excuse our mank faces.*

This Sunday just past I participated in the Great Manchester 10k Run.

I did the same run last year and trained hard beforehand. My time was 1 hour 11. This year, however, I didn’t train half as much as I should have but managed to complete the course in 1 hour 9! What is even better is that I didn’t feel half as tired as I did last time.

This has really been the motivation that I needed to get back, seriously, into my running. Me and a friend are even signing up to a half marathon next year as something to aim for. Are we mad? We will find out but I am very excited at this stage.

How are all of you doing? Any runs booked too?

If anybody would like to donate to the charity that I ran for…The British Heart Foundation…it isn’t too late to do so. Any donation no matter how big or small will be highly appreciated.

1st Charity Run of 2015 BOOKED

Here’s a bit of motivation booked already… Manchester 10k run in May.

Last year I suprised myself by completeing the race without stopping or walking in 1hr 11mins. In my current state, I could probably pencil roll the thing. Hang on, pencils are associated with skinny, let me rephrase that to sharpie roll.

Why not join up too for a good cause or another one close to where you live? Once you sign up they send you training plans and instructions on setting up a JustGiving page if you wanted to.

Yesterday I signed up for the Bupa Great Manchester 10k run. It’s not a marathon but I have to start somewhere. If anybody is in the UK, why not take a look and see if you fancy running? http://www.greatrun.org/Events/event.aspx?id=4

There is a huge list of charities to run for or if you don’t fancy running for one on the list then you can just put whichever other charity you want to.
I am running for Macmillon. A charity that helps provide care for cancer patients and their families. The work they do is astounding and the staff are unbelievable. They have helped my family a lot in the past. If you fancy sponsoring me then please visit my JustGiving page. Any donation would be much appreciated 🙂 https://www.justgiving.com/Sophia-Thom/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=shares-from-eua&utm_content=Sophia-Thom&utm_campaign=eua-share-facebook

Phase one of training starts tomorrow with an 8 mile run/walk to get me into the swing of things. Will keep you posted!
