I am on my journey to the 10K run / walk (whichever I choose to do on the day)!
This will be my first time running a long distance, other than sports days, I don’t do much running. I am a keen swimmer, and I go swimming regularly between 3 and 4 times per week.
I set myself the challenge when asked by the team captain, John, to run the 10K, because it would be a new and a great, excellent challenge for me to be able to complete, with my colleagues. I have completed some walking training, with the odd run here and there, but nothing as lengthy as what the 10K is going to be. As a team, we did a practice run on Bury Athletics Track, when it poured down with rain! Afterwards though, the weather brightened up, I thought to myself why on earth, did it rain the opposite way round? However, I enjoyed the practice run on the athletics track, and got to meet some new and familiar faces from around the Persona company. Also, I have been walking to a further bus stop from home, when I catch the bus, to get a feel, to get ready for the 10K.
I am really looking forward to running the 10K on Sunday 16th September, and I believe this to be a great cause to raise money for Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary. Here's the link to our .
I’m doing it this year, could you do it next year?
