I am looking forward to my first race of the year – I love Cambridge and the thought of running around it in March is enough to get me out in the bitter weather conditions. My aim is to run it under 2 hours and raise money for The Cardiomyopathy Association (CMA).
The CMA is a UK charity providing information and support to families affected by the heart muscle condition cardiomyopathy. I want to help my running partner who tragically lost her husband to the condition a few years ago.
Years have passed, the children are growing and with her limited spare time she is training for her first marathon, her aim is to raise a total of £1000 this year for the CMA. I am sure she will do it.
Running stats for 2011:
929.01 kms were covered – used two pairs of Nike
Lost 3 toe nails
Burned a total of 56 630 calories in the process that’s the equivalent of 103 burgers…
Have a love and hate relationship with my Nike+iPod
Only start to get in a zone 45 minutes into a run
I have placed my marathon medal in a noticeable area of the kitchen
