For the third consecutive year runners are entering the British 10k London Run on behalf of the CLL Support Association (CLLSA). It is being held on the 12th July 2015 and below you can see some information taken from their website which explains a little about the race:
“The British 10k London Run is staged on the world’s greatest road race route through the heart of Central London passing many of the Capitals truly world class historic landmarks”
“Starting on Piccadilly outside The Guards & Calvary Club, runners will pass the new WW2 bomber command memorial which was unveiled by HM Queen Elizabeth 11 in June 2012 with Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner forming the backdrop to the start”
I have been working with the CLLSA for the last 5 years and decided that it was time to dig out my running shoes and take part!
I persuaded a couple friends to join me last year and we have all been training over the winter. Through all kinds of weather we have been pounding the pavements to get fit and prepare for the race. Helen, Christine and I are all mums of three young children and we were looking for a bit of a challenge. We wanted to raise as much money as we could for the CLLSA and also set a good example for our children to show them that if you work hard and set your mind to it you can reach your goals.
Christine’s husband Tom has now joined us along with his friend Simon and they are keen to get a fast time, we will give them a run for their money though!
Training is going well and as you can see we entered a 5k ‘Glow Run’ in Victoria Park, Bath to help us prepare. We covered ourselves in glow sticks and face paint and off we went.
If you would like to sponsor me I have set up a just giving page to raise as much money as I can for the CLL Support Association:
