I get my right hip manipulated back into alignment every now and then (despite doing weekly Pilates, clams, side leg raises etc etc) and every time it feels wonderful! It frees it up and I run much more fluently and easily, until sadly it all seems to gradually tighten up again.
I chose a charity that meant a lot to me personally (hospice that cared for my father) so it meant I was more than happy to make up any shortfall. Fundraising was just asking around family, friends and colleagues and I ended up paying
??500, but that felt ok for me.
I thought this was a flat course too until I did it this year....unfortunately the hill gets bigger and bigger, and by lap 17 it's a killer!!! But it's a great event, well organised, welcoming and friendly with an awesome medal and Tshirt- highly recommended.
I'm hoping to join my local road running club and it's suggested that as the evenings are getting darker, I need a head torch. A few of you recently recommended the alpkit gamma but it's currently out of stock on their website and not due in until end of November. So...is it best to wait or try for a different one? C
