It's my birthday this month, and instead of buying me presents, I'd like something a little different.
I've wanted to run a charity half-marathon for years - but with university getting in the way, it was a little difficult for me to train. Now that I'm finished education (for now!), I'd really like to get working on this goal again. It might take me a while to get to a half-marathon, but I'm planning a bunch of 5K and 10K charity races along the way.
But here's the problem - my sports bras don't fit! My runnings shoes are falling apart and give me awful, awful blisters! I don't possess any winter running gear! And having just finished four years of universities, I'm a little bit poor!
So, if you were planning on buying me a present for my birthday this year, or if you want to do but you're not sure what to get me, I'd really love it if you could just send a fiver or a tenner my way to help me get all the gear I need together so that I can start running again.
No pressure and no obligation of course - only if you'd already be spending the money on me anyway! Post-birthday I'll be spending any money that you guys are kind enough to give me on the gear and uploading pictures of it all, as well as hopefully starting up a blog to document my progress.
The £100 goal is entirely arbitrary, since I had to set one. Any amount is most welcome :)
If you've this then thank you, and if you've decided to gift me with some money, THANK YOU!
In a long and roundabout way, it's for a good cause!
