In what is becoming a bit of a tradition round these parts, I’m running the Royal Parks half-marathon. In just 30 days!
It’s definitely my favourite half-marathon. The route is spectacular and it’s normally really well organised. Not something that can be said for all large races.
And, as usual, I’m running to raise funds for Epilepsy Action. They are a fantastic charity that do so much for people living with Epilepsy, as well as their family and carers. They also do great work to raise public awareness of this, the UK’s most common form of neurological condition, while busting myths and working to promote acceptance.
As someone living with Epilepsy, I’ve personally benefited from their services and want them to continue to offer information and reassurance wherever it’s needed. So please consider sponsoring my run via this link.
Last year, I was aiming to finish in 2:00 or under, and came in at 1:54. I was super pleased and will be looking for an injury-free sub-two hour run this year too. Training has started and, while travel has made it a little trickier than usual, I’m on it. 16km run scheduled for this weekend, peaking at 18km after that.
Thanks in advance for any assistance for this great cause (Epilepsy Action, not me!) and I’ll be sure to report back on my run when I finally get my breath back.
