Well - if at first you dont succeed try try again!
I decided this year that I would run 1000km, and that I would do it to raise money for 2 charities. Child Bereavement Charity and Cancer Research UK.
Over the past few years I have grown to love running, with all the pain that comes with it. So throughout my challenge I will be testing myself by running long distances, on tough terrain and seeking interesting places to run.
My first run happened on 2nd January. I ran 8.8km and I fell over in the mud and nearly into the River Thames. Not a great start but it just proves once you fall down you have to get back up and keep going. This photo was taken shortly after this run. I think I look suprisingly happy....
