A week enduring for a cause

Well I’m just sitting here thinking about my recent endeavours to raise any amounts of money for the Motor Neuron Disease and  NSPCC.

5th May 2014 – 26 miles endurance trek for the Motor Neuron Disease charity

Trekking up Whernside (wikipedia) then along to Whitescar caves and back along the base of Whernside then  back to our starting point at Ribblehead viaduct.

11th May 2014 – 13.1 miles Leeds Half Marathon for the NSPCC charity

Medal & Sloth badge Half marathon

After the calm slow walk to the start line, me and my buddy were off and trotting in the glorious weather, the sun and breeze complimented each other making for an easy initial run. Bit unlucky that my buddy sustained a calf injury half way around the course so we could only walk/jog in intervals for the latter part, but hey we weren’t racing anyone. Sadly there were many runners needing more serious medical assistance along the way and I felt sorry for their plight.

Loved the jelly babies on offer near the water stations(yum). The team carrying the washing machine were amazing along with the speedwalking 63 year old who was really giving it some.

So chuffed we made it over the finish line, our first official Half marathon event completed.

Big cheers(whoop whoop) to all those taking part who carried their weight whether they ran, walked or jogged the route…well done to you all.

It was a great day with a great crowd of people cheering us on every step of the way…Loved it

Many thanks to all who sponsored me for these two endurance events completed in the same week, cheers.
