Hey hey hey! How is everyone? Me? Yeah I’m alright. Both of my boys have tonsillitis and refuse to sleep, but other than that I’m GREzzzzzzzzzz…..zzz…..SORRY! SORRY! I fell asleep for a second BECAUSE MY KIDS ARE UP ALL NIGHT! Let’s move on.
Big things are happening y’all! Somehow, (I blame my lack of sleep), I have been convinced by two of my very lovely twitter friends, Amy and Leilani, to run in not 1, not 2, but 3, 10k races this summer between May and July. That’s 30k…in 3 months….I’m going to die of running. BUT all three races are for brilliant charities and, you know I love me some fundraising. I know it’s not for the MS Society (my usual) but any charity is good in my eyes! Don’t worry I’ll be fundraising again for the MS Society soon! My leg of the race, is the first one in Brighton. This isn’t your typical 10k race. This is the Hero’s Race and in this race, WE GET TO DRESS UP AS SUPER HERO’S! Capes and masks and awesomeness, AND it’s the day after my birthday. So so exciting! The charity I’m running for is Pass It On Africa. Here is a bit of info…
Pass It On Africa (formerly Passing It On) is a Brighton-based charity working tirelessly to build schools and support education in some of the poorest parts of Africa. We achieve this through our fund-raising events in the UK, including our flagship superhero-themed races, the HEROES RUN. Bring it!
Exciting stuff, right? I won’t go into the other runs, but instead leave you this link to go check out our team page. Please donate if you can! http://www.justgiving.com/teams/3Girls3Races
Moving on. My running has been going really well, although with the sudden snowy/icy weather, running outside it out. Which has left me with lots of elliptical work and tight calves. Totally my own fault for not stretching enough. See I am taking responsibility! I’ve downloaded a 10k training app, that I started using yesterday, and I really like it! I will keep you up to date with all my training progress leading up to my multiple 10ks. Yeah I’m going to die.
Lastly, if you get a chance listen to that dope ass song up there. It is awe-some. It’s come up on my running playlist more than once this week and it is not to be missed. It’s AlunaGeorge- Your Drums, Your Love. Hot track. For realsies!
p.s- I don’t know why my font went wacko up there, but I don’t know how to change it. Don’t you judge me! : ) xx
