Me? Run?

Looking outside at the snowy pavement, I am wondering what on earth possessed me. I managed to run for 20 minutes, once, on a treadmill, two weeks ago. What on earth makes me think I can run a mile? Ok, so it’s only a mile, but it might as well be a marathon given my lack of experience and level of fitness.

I need shaking up – a challenge will be good for me. I was determined that it wouldn’t be an intellectual challenge: nothing, in fact, that involves studying or over thinking. “All” I have to do is get off my butt, put on my trainers and propel myself out of the door. You have no idea, my friends, how much that thought terrifies me!

I have six weeks until the Sport Relief Mile, (I just hope it won’t be me that needs relieving – nor reviving – on the day!) so if you’d like to give me some encouragement and help someone who needs help at the same time, please do click on the link and sponsor me. Better still, sign up yourself and come and run with me!
