Placement in Namibia to help kids affected by AIDS/HIV

Update posted by ShannonH On Feb 12, 2015

This is the quote that an old firend said to me whenI told him I was going to run a 10k. "the first two yards are all in the head".  I didnt really think much about that until i started my training last week.

So I have all the gear and no idea.  I am stood at my front door with my sparrow legs sticking out of my shorts and they are whiter than two bottles of steralised milk. I go to step out and feel this overwhelming urge to turn around and sit in front of the fire. BUT I stepped out and started to walk down the road. walking faster and faster until eventually I am actually running

It didnt last long as my training guide said for the first few days you need to walk for 2 minutes then run for 2 minutes and keep doing that for 20 minutes. The fact is though that i felt really good about starting this. The training continues and i will let you know how it goes.
