So September whizzed by in a massive blur, as so much was going on with the Charity.
Had 4 events planned, missed 2. Once because I was late (my Spartan race is deferred until 2018) and one because I was ill (Bear Grylls). However, I was still able to complete 80 miles in September, one of my highest. Here is what I got up to!
Northampton Half Marathon
Team Lewis was made up for myself, Lisa, Sandra, Nicholas and Rosie.
It was nice to be able to run in my home town as so many of my events involved travelling further afield. Initially, freaked out when they said no headphones but actually it was nice to hear the support of the crowd. What I loved about the run being local is people shouting words of support and encouragement for The Lewis Foundation. Not only something I experienced but also the rest of Team Lewis. Hearing people shout thank you for supporting a family member or friend and you’re doing amazing things really spurred me on and my fellow team members. Our team stormed it. Money is still coming in and at the last count was around £1700, which will provide so many gift bags. Also, some great achievements from Team Lewis with their times. Was so proud, knowing that as a team we were making a huge difference.
And yes, I was using Batman as my pacer! (See picture below).
Tough Mudder – Team Eat Trek
Tough Mudder was where it all began, when 3 years ago I decided I had to do something mental to raise money for the TV’s in Talbot Butler Ward in Northampton General Hospital. So, Tough Mudder was what inspired me to continue to complete my runs and walks to make a difference to others. I got chosen to be part of Team Eat Trek, who were the sponsors of the event and I was running in a team with 59 other people.
