I'm fundraising for The Children’s Hospital Charity

During this time and last summer for Emily, the amazing staff at Sheffield Children’s Hospital have been going above and beyond for patients and families, I'm going above and beyond for them by taking on my own virtual running challenge! I’m going to run/jog 🤣 10k every week for 10 weeks, target 100k by 22nd November!

Please support my fundraising if you can, every penny makes a difference.

Thank you!

10km done, despite the wind’s best efforts to stop me!! 🤣 2 more runs to go! 👍😊 🏃‍♀️ Xx

Thurs 24th - rest day before the final push!

Thursday 24th Sep
Today was a proper rest day, though there were 2 x dog walks, these did not  count, as I want to finish with a full on effort!! So, the plan is to do a 10km run Friday, Sunday and Tuesday or Wednesday depending on the feet! 🤣 This should bring up the 102km for September 🎉 Let’s do this!! 🏃‍♀️ X

Due to a few blisters, todays long run became 3 x brisk walks, which added 12km. Hopefully will be able to do my 10km run tomorrow 👍 38km to go in 7 days . Nearly there! 😊🏃‍♀️x

Another 4km to bring it up by 9km on rest day :)

Another 10km added! Enjoyed the run today, despite the stiffening hamstrings 🤣

Sunday 20th Sep
Another 10km added today after a steady day yesterday as it was dad’s birthday. Only a 6km brisk walk yesterday. Think that brings up 60km to go!! 😊

Fri 18th day 2!

Friday 18th Sep
6km run to kick start today and bring up the 20km mark! 🏃‍♀️ Only 80km to go 😅

17th September upping the km for the day!

Friday 18th Sep
Legs were a little heavy but needed to add a few km to keep up my daily average, so a brisk march with the doggies added 6km to my earlier 8km run, to make my total for the day 14km! Only 86km to go in the next 12 days!!  :) 

A few more Km added today!

Thursday 17th Sep
Finished the day off with a brisk walk to get over the 10km target for the day, in fact managed to get to 14km. Now legs very tired!! 😊 Bring on tomorrow! x

Today’s start an 8km run 😊 only 92km to go 🤣🤣

Thursday 17th Sep
I’ve changed the challenge, as I hadn’t read the instructions properly!! 😳😩 So, I have to finish my 100km within September! 🏃‍♀️ So here goes... watch this space for updates 🤞🤞

Getting started and Why!

Monday 14th Sep
This charity is really important to me....the care Emily received last year was amazing. The work they continue to do for families like mine is incredible. As Covid 19 prevented our Fundraising plans this year, I wanted to do something at least, so this is a good start, going the distance for Team Theo. I will update how I get on 🤞🤞 x
