I will be running the British 10k run in London this July - or if I'm honest at the very best jogging it very slowly. It will be for a children's charity and I hope to inspire you to make a donation, big or small. This is a personal challenge to get fit especially after recently discovering that my blood pressure is on the high side. Until April 2012, and apart from playing football once in a blue moon, the longest distance I had ever run in my life was 400m. I've walked and hiked longer distances but I've never run longer than my 400m relay back in high school. My biggest challenge is therefore getting my leg muscles to support me moving at speed - a term I use loosely.
In order to build the necessary amount of guilt to ensure I continue exercising and actually turn up for the run, I registered with JustGiving. I looked through many charities and although I don't know anyone at Hope for Children, I liked what I read about their work. They help orphaned, poor and exploited children world wide. Please pile the pressure on by making donations... Please show me the money!
