Next Saturday will be a real challenge

So as you may aware I have decided to take part in the 2008 Aware Christmas fun run (more info can be found here). This is a big deal for me as I have never ran a race or even walked a walk of this distance. I wouldn’t consider myself fit! So I decided to take part, not only for myself but for a great cause, Aware.

I have raised roughly 150euro at this stage without shouting about it too much. There is a fund raising night planned on Thursday so that may help! What is also spurring me on is the fact I have my work x mas party the night before on the 5th of December. That should be fun and will be a great hangover cure I reckon. Wish me luck by the way and I will update you on how the “training” is going in the next week! This weekend I have walked 5k on Saturday and Sunday so it is a start. And once the run is over, I hope to keep this walking lark going for as long as I can. I would rather not be in my 40s and be out of breath from walking a mile!
