When I turned 30 last September, I set myself a challenge of running 12 half marathons in 12 months. Then I managed to get a place at the Great North Run so it's now 13 half marathons in 13 months! Quite fitting that, seeing how a half marathon is 13.1 miles!
I'm 10/13 so far, and will update this page as I go! Here is the full-list:
September: Velopark Half
October: Birmingham Half
November: Richmond Half
December: Victoria Park Half
January: Benfleet 15
February: Olympic Park Half - PB!
March: The Big Half
April: Paris Marathon - PB!
May: Hackney Half
June: Southend Half - PB!
July: VeloPark Half (actually in June)
August: Race the Train (14 miles)
September: The Great North Run
While I was working my way through the challenge, I thought it would be great to raise some money for a great cause. After thinking and praying long and hard about who to raise money for, I eventually settled on Compassion.
Yvonne and I have been sponsoring our lovely Koffivi from Togo for two years now. I know that Compassion does great work with him, and many children like him so now I'm excited to be helping out other children in a similar situation as him.
