Marathon Plans

12 Jul

As you are all aware I attempt to run usually up to about 6 miles but I have been thinking for a while about stepping this up a wee bit. Therefore I have entered a few races to increase my mileage so this year I will be entering the following races20th July 2016 – The Durham City 5k (3 miles)

4th September 2016 – The Middlesbrough 10K (6 miles)

25th September 2016 – Redcar Half Marathon (13 Miles)

Next year I plan on doing a Marathon (26 Miles), I have entered my name into the ballot for London Marathon next year and I find out in October if I have a place or not. If I am unlucky and do not get a place I will be looking at entering a different Marathon next year.

On top of this I’m going to attempt to put myself a run streak together, this started yesterday so I’m on to day 2 lol

I will be setting up a just giving page for anyone that would like to sponsor me for this, at the moment I am thinking of ‘Rays of Sunshine’ which was the charity we used in memory of Pop or ‘Special Effects’ (although I am open to suggestions of anything else)

Bear in mind I will not be running a marathon until next year so that gives you all plenty of time to save and donate as this may just give me the motivation I need to get through thetraining and be able to run a marathon.

As an extra incentive once the just giving page is set up, everyone that donates £5 or more can enter a time they think it will take me to complete the Marathon next year. Whoever gets the the closest time to my official finishing time will win a meal for two (selected by me off Groupon, but don’t worry I will pick a nice meal somewhere near where you live
