There are two weeks to go until the City2Surf fun run, and I can't believe it's come up so fast.
My fundraising tally has reached $200 so far, money that will go to Caritas aid and development projects here or overseas.
I used be positively afraid of running. What was I afraid of? Plenty. Being tired, hurting, and looking silly for starters.
What made it possible for me to contemplate running was finding this gentle, easy eight-week training program for people with no running experience:http://www.runningplanet.com/training/beginning-runner-program.html
And using these five stretches after each session:
Well, now I've done it. But I honestly don't know if I'll continue jogging every day after the City2Surf is over.
I'm glad to be a part of a great community event, and especially grateful for the opportunity to help raise money for Caritas Australia. I'm glad I've fulfilled a little dream - which was to run, not walk, in the City2Surf.
But I don't think running is really my 'thing', if you know what I mean.
