My story

[p]Over the last year I have found that exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude and your mood. Clearing my mind whilst out on a run has helped my anxiety a tremendous amount and I have really started to enjoy it (I never thought I would see the day I'd be saying I like running). Running has become more than just a physical thing for me, it's also therapeutic. However, I am aware that this is not the case for everyone. Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year, and not all people are able to find a cure as well as I have. [/p][p]I wanted to combine my new love for running and my improved mental health by giving back and organising my own fundraising event, and it was a no brainer to raise funds for [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/]MIND[/url]. [/p][p]Throughout 2018 I am going to be challenging myself to run a 10K race every month of the year! I would absolutely love to be able to raise a minimum of £1200 which works out at £100 per race. Every penny will help…[/p][p]£10 could help campaign for better support services, talking therapy and crisis care for people whose mental health is in crisis. [/p][p]£21 could help the online community Elefriends run for one hour, giving people the chance to get hugely valuable 'peer support'. [/p][p]£39 could allow the Infoline call handlers answer 5 calls from people, often in desperate need of support, helping them to find support and a way forward.[/p][p]January - Sun 21st Abingdon, Oxfordshire [i](joined by Becky) - [/i][b]COMPLETED IN 01:04:14[/b][/p][p]February - Sat 24th Stanley Park, Blackpool ([i]joined[/i] [i]by[/i] [i]JohnJo[/i]) - [b]COMPLETED[/b] [b]IN[/b] [b]01:00:11[/b][/p][p]March - Sun 17th Langsett, Peak District ([i]joined by George[/i]) -[b] COMPLETED IN 01:29:00[/b] (it was snowing!)[/p][p]March -(Additional) - Sun 25th Liverpool Half Marathon ([i]joined by JohnJo[/i]) - [b]COMPLETED IN 02:19:08[/b][/p][p]April - Sat 21st Blackpool Running Festival- [b]COMPLETED IN - 01:04:21[/b][/p][p]May - Sat 5th Olympic Park, London [i](joined by Meghann & Rich) - [/i][b]COMPLETED IN - 01:05:09[/b][/p][p]June - Due to illness and business travel I was unable to run, however I thought the additional half marathon I ran in March would hopefully cover this!!
