5k to me sounds like a long way to walk let alone run it.
My partner Cheryl decided she was going to do the Telford 5k Dark Run, as you may see in her blog she writes about getting fitter and eating healthier so this challenge was just down her street.
We all went and while she went to warm up with dancing and light workouts I watched the children ready to cheer on their mommy.
They all got to the start line, neon colour everywhere glowing in the dark and then they were gone, on their journey.
We went to get some hot drinks because it was bloody freezing so I can’t imagine what its like running in this cold weather but like the solider she is she powered through.
Now what you need to know about Cheryl has a condition called Intracranial Hypertension which is pressure on the brain so she is in constant pain from headaches and today was one of her bad days along side this her knee is under investigation of damage caused over the years.
But she took the challenge anyway and decided she will do what she wants from now on and not let things drag her down.
Nighttime came fast and I was pitch black so all we could see was tiny lights moving up and through the woods coming towards us. People came and went until we saw them in the distance running towards the finish line.
I can’t tell you how proud I am of her determination in what she wants to do, she want’s to make a collection of medals of charity runs and eventually tackle the Tough Mudder.
Keep going and onto your next race.
So here is my Pic of the Day:
