I started running last year after completing the Couch to 5K program with a local running group, Run Like a Girl & Sky Blues In It Together. Life got in the way, & after about 9 months, I stopped running. I did the program again in July this year & am determined to keep be fit & healthy for myself & my family, knowing that a healthy body = healthy mind & also to allow me to keep enjoying my food! 

Event details

Run everyday - Our Running Advent-ures

 I’m taking part in a Christmas run every day challenge from 1 to 25 December & for every run I do, £1 goes into a pot for my chosen charity. I’m on day 10 out of 25 & hope to continue the challenge to completion & raise some cash for a fantastic local charity, Helping Hands Community Project, a local charity 
helping local people in need. They give people ‘the support and opportunities to feel better about themselves, be more active in the community and get back into work & provide the basics through a soup kitchen and give a hand up not just a hand out through new skills, experience and qualifications’.

However, I thought I could hopefully raise some more money via friends & family & have that extra incentive to keep me going on the rainy & cold days when a cup of tea, the Christmas tin of Quality Street & sofa beckon.....any donation would be amazing & you’ll get to laugh at post run pics of me looking tired & beetroot like, as well as get a warm fuzzy feeling from donating to Helping Hands....❤️

5 runs left & after upping my target, it was smashed last night by an anonymous donor - thank you so much!
