Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'!
One of my New Year's Resolutions for 2015 was to start running more and, unlike other faddy resolutions like lose weight, eat healthier, I'm pleased to say I actually kept this one up! I am by no means a long distance runner but even the smallest accomplishments in terms of time and distance make me feel so proud.
In the summer I practiced extensively for the Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research UK and was so happy to shave a few minutes of my 5k personal best and raise money for charity at the same time! A few weeks ago I took on the Fleet 10k and while I was by no means the fastest across the finish line it was an amazing feeling to know I had achieved my first ever 10k!
With the weather getting colder and the evenings getting darker it is harder to keep up my running but Cancer Research UK is encouraging more people to get out and about this Winter as the London Winter Series returns! The run series is a 10km run through the streets of Liverpool, London and Manchester, passing iconic landmarks along the way. I will be entering the London event for January 2016!
