Virgin Strive Challenge 'Day Off' Marathon...

Kim Ingleby

My page:

Woo hoo! I did it ... one crazy 'day off'. Inspiring, challenging and amazing, thank YOU all for your great support. Check out my blog on Kim Ingleby to read more. Go go go Strive Core Team with you awe inspiring challenge... 

Hmmm.... why do I get asked to do these crazy things at short notice?!  Well, it's not that crazy in the big context of the Strive Challenge as a whole but totally crazy for me :-) 

Thursday, yes that's right. In less than 48 hours I will walk, jog and perhaps run a little for 26.2 miles to raise money for The Big Change Charity, as part of the #StriveChallenge. I have not been running really since the end of May.... 

Why? Why oh why! After the Sierra Leone Marathon, I certainly don't want to do another marathon and I am certainly not trained or ready, so I do not recommend this! 

But it's not every day the Branson Crew & Bounce Balls ask you to run a marathon for an amazing charity, that links completly with my values & Energised Performance's beliefs about empowering young people to believe in themselves, to believe anything is possible, to get out and do. 

Then Richard Branson's quote', If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you are not sure if you can do it, say yes, then work out how later...' Hmmm. I will do that Thursday. 

As some of you know medically over the last year I have had an interesting and challenging year... and I still have a couple of my 'funny aggressive turns' a week, they scare me, I won't lie but they have made me a better and wiser Coach and person. I am also sure these are good training if not the long runs?! 

I do take things so much easier and more in balance, but sometimes, just sometimes you think, anything can happen.  A couple of clients I have coached recently have inspired me through their personal loss to get on and do this, for them I hope it gives them a tiny piece of something and for The Big Change, I hope it gives one person the belief that however low, however challenged you feel, there is a ray of sunshine and hope, you just have to find it. 

It's been my aim to hit £40k for our Energised Charity Funraising this year, so far we are at £37, 210, so another £2,790, this helps to step closer towards that goal. 

If you fancy reading more about Sierra Leone and my full crazy year it's here: check out my blog on 

I have no idea how I will do Thursday... 

But something tells me to have courage and begin.... 

If you do sponsor The Big Change I am hugely grateful and will do my very best to complete the miles, powererd by Bounce Balls in my Sweaty Betty, Shock Absorber & Mizuno Kit :-) 

Thank you, thank YOU from the centre of my crazy heart to you all,
