Iíve done something really stupid.
I signed myself up to run 13.1 milesÖa half marathon. The Bupa Great Birmingham Run.
Iím doing it for charity thoughÖ does that count? An awesome charity called Acorns Childrenís Hospice.
Iím very nervous. VERY. I have never run more than 10km before. EVER! When I was at school I was a short distance runner. Very short distance. Iím talking 100m at the most. I played football (soccer for you non-UK folk) and I donít ever remember being tired while doing so so I must have been quite fit.
I started running again a couple of years ago. Iíve run a couple of 5km races and a few 10km races. I havenít run any races since September and Iíve barely run since then.
I think I should start trainingÖ..
Iíve signed up for the Great British 10K through London in July and Iíll probably do a few more races before then as well.
What have you signed up for?
