Our baby was born 13 weeks early on the 30th September and she is now in the Warrington Neonatal unit, she will be in there for 3 months until her due date, when she comes out i am looking to do a good few runs to raise money for the department.
I live in Warrington, Cheshire and am looking to run a number of races, 10k,. half marathon and maybe a full marathon!!
I have never done a full marathon before so will have to see how the trainig goes.
I love what Eddie Izzard has done with his running and although with time constraints of a new baby and work i cannot do what he has done i would like to do something similar.
I have tried to search for races on here but am finding it difficult to find them, i would like to do maybe 4 half marathons over a number of weeks, some 10k to warm up and maybe a marathon to finish? All over Jan, Feb and March?
It may be too much but for now i would like to plan what i will be running so i can put some time aside and start traininig.
Any info you can give me will be fantastic, thank you everyone
I think i will be doing this, i have never heard of it before this forum but it does sound good.
Am i right in thinking that there are no showers at the end?
My Dad in Law is an ex Station officer, he said there may be a posibility the fire brigade could come down and set up a decontamination unit, it will dilute anything on the body 2000 to 1 so all the mud and crap will fall off.
Does anyone know who i would need to speak to here in order to sort that out?
I bet if we had something like that people would be more inclined to do it!
What times have people done this in, i can run a 10K comfortable in 50 mins so i was thinking 10 miles comfortably as 1.5 hours add mud ad hills so this will be completed in between 2 and 2.5 hours?/
Stick the rocky balboa sound track on and anyone will increase their speed, with that on in your ears you will be on course for a 2.5 hour marathon, you have seen them on the TV, Paula Radcliffe has Balboa running along side her all the way!!
I didnt think of them before i tried them on, i wanted asic or brooks.
Saw them and thought they are ugly but as soon as i put them on they fit like a glove, they are a stability shoe as my feet roll a little to the outside, when mine knacker i will definately buy a 2nd pair!
