Hello! I may have had a momentary blip in consciousness, as I seem to have signed up to RUN THE PARIS MARATHON in April!!!
Having only done a 10k sponsored run before (that is also the height of my running career to date) I am a little concerned that I have promised to run 43k…
Have you done a Marathon before? Please give me some tips!
That aside, I am running for a charity called Kidscape, which is ‘the children’s charity’, and which my current employer, Protocol Education, supports. They run workshops for children who are bullying or being bullied or abused, and the staff there are passionate about what they do.
My Current Details
To kick off my training schedule, with which I plan to be rigorous (!), I will now keep a record of my details as of today, Friday 7th September 2012. I am having to use my blue inhaler on average once, for every two miles of jogging. Hopefully this will be reduced – when I was training for the British 10k I managed to build myself up and I actually managed the final race without needing it at all. My asthma is only mild, which I am very grateful for, but I think a 26 mile race would challenge any level!
How I’m going to raise £1500 by April I have no idea… I’m planning on begging for money from family and friends, dressing up in pyjamas and running around the streets of central London asking for change (managed to raise £70 in 45 minutes last time!), baking a lot and generally getting on everyone’s nerves.
