I’m into Month 2 of my 1000 miles running challenge raising money to make a difference to those with cancer in Northampton General Hospital. This month has been pretty full on and at times brutal (thinking the Castle Ashby Trail Marathon!).
This month I became a Brand Ambassador for Seasons Trail (https://seasonstrail.com), which is a new fitness wear company. They are also supporting The Lewis Foundation by donating 10% of sales of their fitness wear products when the code: KEEP_RUNNING2017 is used.
Total mileage done this month is 70. This is what I got up to!
6th February 2017 – Obstacle Gym, Lutterworth
I was super excited to go to the Obstacle Gym. I love Obstacle Racing and this was the opportunity to get training and build up some mileage. So had the opportunity to get a free session (usually £15.00) and took along my friend and Blogger Katie (Cake vs Scales).
This was a 4 hour session from 10am – 2pm, which was free-play. Despite the cold, we were buzzing! The obstacle gym is an outdoor 1km course littered with 30 obstacles. Once we given demonstrations we were off!
As you can see we tackled everything from walls, tyres, mud hills and wading through water. Great coaching through some tricky obstacles that you would normally not have time to take your time on whilst on the course. It was lovely to see families there, in addition to groups of friends having a day out.
19th March 2017 – Castle Ashby Half Marathon
So a team of us – Mieke Jordan, Caroline Hawthorn, Elaine Bates, Gail Ingram, Susan Gilkes, Katie Groome and myself attended this event. We were running to collectively raise money for gift bags for adults with cancer in Northampton.
