My daughter-in-law Toni and her friend and running companion Carol have made a rash decision – they are going to up their game and instead of running 10k (with or without obstacles) they are going to run 10 miles. Now as regular readers will know half a mile (or the distance to the station platform when I saw the train coming) were my limit so I am in awe of anyone who can run 10k let alone 10 miles. As I said in an earlier post I think walking is a more sensible way of getting round than running which seems to involve far too much hard work. But each to their own.
They have set up a justgiving page saying that they are running Great South Run at the end of October for Cancer Research UK. They actually managed 10k in a smidgeon under an hour the other day so they have got 7 months to work on the other 4 miles. Mind you if it’s in October they will probably be running in a blizzard (I’ll say anything to encourage them!!).
I will keep you updated on their progress (both their running and their fundraising).
