Hi all, in around 3 weeks time I will be running the Bupa Manchester 10k.
I’ve done the race twice before, but I think this year is going to be the hardest.
Last year’s race number:
I used to be relatively fit, doing quite a lot of running and going to the gym twice a week as well as doing bits and pieces at home, but nowadays I’m not exactly the most active person, with my only workout being to climb the single flight of stairs to the office.
Entering the race this year was a bit of a spur of the moment thing, my brother has been planning to do it for a while and since I’ve been too lazy to any training I decided not to enter.
So now at the 11th hour, after hitting 200lbs and 26% body fat (which I’ve been informed is classed as borderline obese) I’ve decided this will be a kick start to eating better and doing more exercise.
This year’s route:
Now, why am I telling you all of this? Well it’s all a shameless plug to get some money from you.
This year I am running for the Alzhiemer’s Society because unfortunately my wife’s grandmother suffers from the disease.
I’m not normally one to be begging people for money, and I know times are hard for everyone but anything you can donate would be much appreciated.
All the money goes directly to the charity, not to me, and please GiftAid it if you do donate.
To donate, please go to my JustGiving page at http://www.justgiving.com/RDunneBupaManchester2014
or text RICD89 and your amount £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10
Thank you for your support.
My next question, is there anyone else that is doing the race this year?
If so have you received your pack yet?
When I get mine through I’ll post up my race number and we can compare times and pictures.
