Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.The History
This time last year I decided that after 10 years of teaching fitness it was time to hang up my trainers and spend my time doing other things. It had been 10 terrific years, but I knew I had to let it all go. Within 3 weeks I was getting twitchy from being inactive and needed a new challenge. I came up with the 100 Day Fitness Challenge (100DFC). I thought of it like an anti-New Year’s resolution. Setting a goal to get you to the end of the year fit and healthy, rather than fat and miserable.
So from 23 September to 31 December people were posting in our facebook group about what they’d done each day. My own personal challenge was to do 100 burpees every day for the 100 days. This was achievable but challenging and I did it. Every day without fail. I did them in hotel car parks, I did them in the rain, I did them at 5 am and I did them at 23.30.
When you make a public declaration, you damn well make sure you achieve it!
Because of my new association with all things burpee related I wanted to do something this year that would engage a larger group of people for the 100DFC and challenge them too. So, out of some madness I came up with the world record challenge on SUNDAY 17 NOVEMBER. It’s big enough that people need to train for it. Not too big that people won’t be able to do it. And well, didn’t those of you who were children of the 70s wish you could have asked Norris McWhirter a question on Record Breakers too? ! So with the time we have and the determination of a group success and a childhood fantasy behind us, let’s aim big and nail this record raising both money and enthusiasm for the 100 Day Fitness Challenge.
This year I am again raising money for 'Pass It On' a Wokingham based charity supporting Vision Africa. This £5,000 will pay for three complete projects at Mbere Childrens Home in Kenya which will include new bedding for all the children, rainwater harvesting and a new jinko which is an energy saving cooker.
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you soon.
