Race for Life 2015


I try to do at least one charity run every year, and this year I’ll be doing the Race for Life again.  The Race for Life is a huge nationwide event which runs every year, where women and children of all ages come together to run, jog, walk, or even dance a 5k or 10k route, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  I’ve signed up to do the local 5k race on 5th July, which gives me just under two months to do some fundraising!

My fundraising target for this year is £50, but I hope to raise as much money as possible.  So, if you can spare a few pounds, please sponsor me via my JustGiving page.  Also, if you’re a UK taxpayer, please tick the Gift Aid box, as this will increase your donation by 25%, at no extra cost to you.

Thank you everyone!  And please check back in July for my Race for Life photos!

Sport Relief 3 Miles


This morning, my fiancé and I took part in the local Sport Relief event, and ran not one, but three miles!  The Sport Relief Games aim to bring the nation together to run, swim or cycle to raise money for charity, which will be spent by Comic Relief to change the lives of people living in the UK and abroad.  My fiancé and I ran as a team, and together we managed to raise more than our fundraising target, which I’m very pleased about!

The run was hard work, and I did have to slow to a walk a few times (I blame my complete lack of training), and the weather was unpredictable to say the least (rain and hail followed by hot sun), but it was actually a lot of fun.  In fact, the course we ran was about 3.6 miles in length, so we definitely worked hard for our sponsorship!

This was my fifth charity run and I hope to do an even longer one next time – better get training!  Did you take part in a Sport Relief event this year?

Race for Life 2013


On June 30th I will once again be running the Race for Life in order to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  The Race for Life is a big event which runs every year, where women of all ages come together to run, jog or walk a 5k or 10k distance, and the funds raised through sponsorship go towards research to help beat all 200 types of cancer.

My sister Freya and I have decided to run the course together, and will be completing the 5k track in memory of those we have lost to cancer, and in celebration of those who have overcome it.  The day is always a lot of fun, full of music, colour, fancy dress and positivity, and I am really looking forward to taking part.  I am absolutely determined to run most if not all of the track (rather than walking it), so I am hoping to get a bit of training in before the big day!

My fundraising target for this year is £100, so if you can spare a few pennies and would like to sponsor me, you can do so via my online fundraising page.  It’s safe to use and all money goes directly to Cancer Research UK, and can be Gift Aided too.  Thank you so much in advance!

Sport Relief Mile


Hello lovely readers!

After contemplating for days whether or not to do it, I have taken the plunge and just registered to run the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile at the race course near my house on the 25th of March!  I’ll be running to help raise money for people living extremely tough lives across the UK and around the world.  If I hit my fundraising target of £50, I am going to dress up for the event!!  I haven’t yet decided what to wear though, so if you have any suggestions please leave a comment!

I have done two longer charity runs in the past and am really looking forward to taking part in this one for such a worthy cause.  I have already started training for the Mile (it is less then 3 weeks away after all, eek) and am hoping to run a little every day.  Today I did half a mile in four and a half minutes, which for me is pretty good going.  Hopefully focusing on this will also help me tone up a bit too!

If you would like to sponsor me, please visit my Sport Relief sponsor page.  Whether it’s 50p or £5 every little helps, so thank you in advance for your support!  Remember, if I reach £50 I’ll be dressing up :)
