My #dailymile for #rwwinterrunstreak was done and dusted by 6.30am today. I am definitely grateful for the unusually mild weather that we are currently experiencing. Also, despite waking at 11.45pm Little Miss managed a full night’s sleep. Long may it continue (I’m not sure I will be that lucky however as there are a few more teeth still to emerge). As you may have noticed, I am putting my social media posts up via the blog page these days. This is to send a bit more traffic my way, allow me to waffle on to you all a bit more and to remind you about my 2016 running for rainbows challenges
The Little Mummy Running Year of %ksThe Little Mummy Running year of 5ks
Those of you following me for the last 12 months will know that I have been running a 5k race every month for the last eleven months. Click Here to read my post from way back at the end of 2015. On Sunday 18th December 2016 my challenges come to an end. I cannot believe how fast this year as flown. When I set myself this challenge I was in a very different place. I had recently lost my friend and was feeling powerless and lost. Still submerged in the new baby craziness which offered very limited time for freedom, I needed a direction. Setting myself a series of achievable goals gave me just that.
A quick reminder
Let me remind you of the details of my last race so that, if you’re local, you can come and run with me or just show up and give me some support. Or even some cash. The race itself is the What a Wheeze Winter 5k Race in Ropner Park, Stockton on Tees. Pre registration is recommended as I know there are only a few places left. The race itself is raising money for Asthma UK. As an asthmatic myself, this was a double win. My challenges however have been raising cash for Raindrops to Rainbows. This organisation is doing an amazing job supporting mothers and their families suffering with Post Natal Depression. I have raised a happy little sum so far but any more donations are more than welcome.
So please come along or send me a little message of support. All of your support has been amazing so far. You have all kept me running, all year long.
