My story

[p]Sunday 26th April would have been the London Marathon, the largest one day charity fundraising event in the world. Charities are missing out on a lot of funding but still have work to do and costs, hence the 2.6 challenge was created, to do fundraising events themed around the number 26 or 2.6 such as to run 2.6 km.[/p][p]I have come up with an idea themed around my love of pies, the 2.6 Pieathlon. Basically I have to eat 2.6 pies and then run 2.6km within 26 minutes. I will do this at 20.26 on Sunday 26th.[/p][p]I can normally run 2.6km comfortably in around 13 minutes. I estimate around 4-5 minutes to eat 2.6 pies so it should be fairly doable if I am able to run after eating that much pie, even if it is fairly slow. I really have no idea, I am normally pretty bad at running after eating and it is likely to be fairly uncomfortable and I might feel a bit sick! I will also try and record it on my phone which will limit my ability to run. The pies are Pukka Steak pies. [/p][p]I was wondering whether I should add 2.6km cycling after the run to make it more of a difficult challenge (I would be out exercising still probably less time than normal but wasn't sure if it would count as exercising twice), if I met my donations target and people want me to then I will add the cycle.[/p][p]Concern are helping less well off countries prepare for and cope with Covid-19, Mind are supporting mental health, even more important during lockdown, The Big Issue are supporting their vendors who currently have no income and the Climate Coalition represents another big issue facing mankind with impacts worse than Covid-19.[/p]
