Run, Run, running (and drum, drum, drumming up support)

I am a bit of a slob.  I am not sporty. I am the last picked in the team games, you know the one.  I put on weight when pregnant with my daughter and now she is nearly 9 it is still there.

I don't mind being pleasantly plump but I don't want to be unfit.

So..(and please don't giggle here) I have taken up running.

I might not run for the rest of my life, I might just do exercise at home. However,  I have, in a quick-press-return-before-you-change-your-mind moment, I signed up the The Great South Run 5km.  It is not the big run but a small version the day before.  But still 5km, that is about 3 miles, that is pretty good for a start. To spur me on I have decided to raise money for the NSPCC ChildLine.

So this morning I went for my first run.  Which is actually a lie as I went for my first, second and third run about a month ago but then we went on holiday and I stopped.  But I have started again.  I have my playlist on my ipod, I have a kit to wear, I have my hair tied back in an unflattering way, baby I am ready!




If you do want to sponsor me, and it would be very much appreciated, you can follow this link to the site. Thank you.
