Hi there! Many thanks for visiting my page, please do follow my progress throughout the year.
I have decided to combine my personal monthly running challenge with raising funds for my workplace's charity of the year - the CCPA.
For anyone who doesn't know me, my name is Lindsey. In early 2016 I decided I was going to do a 5K Race For Life. I'd done them before but walked most of it. This time I said to myself and all my friends that I was going to run it.
I started on the couch to 5K program February/March that year. I ran the 5K race in June 2016 in just under 40 minutes. By this time I'd already signed up for the first Stafford 10K in September.
I followed that with 2 more 10K events and in March 2017 completed the Stafford half marathon for the first time. But I lost my mojo at about mile 10 of the half 😖 😂 I really struggled with energy and enthusiasm for running through the the spring and early summer. It was only when training for the 2017 Stafford 10K that I realised I needed to have actual races to do to keep me going.
I work at the Guildhall Shopping Centre in Stafford. Each year we hold several events, all of which are free to attend but we do have a donation bucket for our chosen charity of the year.
For 2018 this charity is the Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance.
I'm not a blogger by any stretch of the imagination but I will do my best to keep this page updated with my training (lots of), blood (hopefully not too much), sweat (standard when you run 👌), tears (yeah there'll probably be some of those) and races (13), and give you all a little insight into the life of someone who likes to think she's a runner 😄🏃
Of course though my main aim is to raise money. My fundraising page is in the "about" section. Please do donate whatever you can, it all helps 😊
I've created an event for each race I'm doing, if anyone would like to come along to give me some moral support that would be amazing 😊👍
