Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I don’t run. I have never been a runner; I didn’t ever think about running. Then, faced with a potential redundancy situation and a very stressful time all round, I had a choice...I could drown my sorrows in gin, or channel my energies elsewhere. I chose the latter. I decided to try this thing called running! Why? Just because I had to do something and I wanted it to be a constructive something! So after letting out my best kept secret to the amazing Penny at DayOne Wellness, that was it, I had started something I had to see through!  I chose to pound the streets and fields, I decided to find comfort and escape in physical activity, I decided to challenge my own perceptions of myself. I decided to take up Penny’s challenge and run, with her help & support of course! Not only that, I decided I had to have a goal, job or no job (I have my job still!) and so, not content with completing my first goal of achieving ‘Couch to 5k’, I had to go further. This is it, a 10K for one of the causes closest to my heart. 

I still can’t quite imagine running 10k, and I haven’t got there yet BUT I am absolutely determined to do this! No doubt I will surprise or even shock a few people with this; the girl who doesn’t run is actually running and even enjoying it, what is going on?! 

If you feel you can support me in any way along my journey from non runner to 10K runner, that would be amazing. I’m running for a great cause and one that will motivate me to the end.
