A non-fashion related post for y'all slash don't care i'll share! Yarrrr..that's right I am running a marathon (god help me)..! 71 days to go until my father and I embark off to Israel to run the Jerusalem marathon. Made up of seven hills, my usual hatrid for running and of course HEAT I have definitely picked a challenge, but with my positive attitude and sheer determination to raise as much money as possible for mentally and physically challenged children in Israel..I KNOW I CAN DO IT!
In early December my father and I both ran our first race in the lead up to the marathon, an 11.7k uphill road race set in the depths of the Surrey Hills in Guildford. I was able to push through that so called 'barrier' at 5k allowing me to complete the race in 1hour 20 minutes. On Sunday we recruited my fellow best friend george to join us on yet another race, this time we ran the Mornington Chasers Winter Grand-Prix 10k in Regents park, consisting of 3 laps of the park. Clearly I had also recruited a few too many potatoes and mince pies over the holidays meaning shifting the christmas belly was harder than I thought! I managed to complete the 10k race in 1Hour 7Minutes (longer than I hoped but still :) ). With intense training and more races scheduled in for the run up to the big race of 26.2 Miles I hope you can all join in supporting us both!! The actual race is 42.195km!!!!
I will keep you updated here and there with my progress. Love you all!
