Story

Ive been so inspired by a particular running friend who ran every day in 2018 and seeing her deal with the ups and downs that i have decided to set myself a challenge and try my best to see it through.

It was my intention to run every day in 2019 however having experienced muscle twinges trying to build up to it ive decided instead to set a distance goal to allow myself recovery time and cross training days And not to feel guilty about fitting in the odd rest day 🤗

it is my intention to run the year i.e. 2019 miles however my ultimate goal would be running 2500 miles between 01/01/19 and 31/12/19.

I plan to split any donations between positive bones and craigs heartstrong and depending on how well i do with donations i may consider other local iom charities as well. (If any representatives from local charities wish to liaise with me and advertise my campaign then please contact me)

wishing everybody a happy and healthy 2019 😀

    ok... so i have fallen a bit off the wagon with this and with training a little bit. increased miles have caused some niggles and on run up to Edinburgh Marathon i have had to reduce miles to assist in recovery as well as tapering. to date i have covered 686 miles in 2019 and i plan to increase the weekly mileage to 70 if possible after i have recovered from the Marathon. I have managed to get a decent chunk of sponsorship so far and thanks to everybody who has supported me so far :)

    So February has been and gone and we’re now into March. Still not back on target for where I should be but plugging away at the miles and I’m not worried about the gap as yet. This week has been a good week of running. Have had some great runs with great people and faced a few demons with some of the speedwork sessions. As of today having done 16.5 miles over 2 runs this brings my total mileage to date 303 miles. This is almost half my miles logged for 2018 so very happy with that 😀😀

    February is now almost over and despite a few niggles I’ve made really good progress playing catch up on the missed miles from my holiday in January. I’m currently around 46 miles off being on track however the mileage is going to increase over the coming months so there’s no reason short of injury why I shouldn’t be able to catch up (hopefully even overtake 🤞) Well over 10% of the distance covered now and over a third of my total miles run in 2018. This year is going to be expensive replacing trainers 🙈🙈

I started running about 2 years ago as part of a challenge with some friends to complete race the sun. Since then I’ve caught the bug big time and have since competed in many local events and the Great Manchester half marathon in 2017. Looking forward to my next challenge 🤗
