Bev, our Rest Homes Team Leader, and Nicky, our Fundraiser, are running the Brighton Half Marathon in aid of the City Mission. We caught up with Bev to see how she is getting on.
“I started running about 13 months ago, and completed my first 5k on Christmas Eve 2016, so it’s been a new venture, and I’m gradually building up my distances.
I regularly do ParkRun, and I’ve notched up 33 so far, it’s certainly a good experience to build up the run threshold each week.
I am going to be running my first ever half marathon on 25th February. I did two 10k’s last year, the first one I did ever was in September and another in November, but I’m upping the stakes and now doing a half marathon, which also happens to be on my 34th wedding anniversary! What a way to celebrate!
I’m on target with my training, keeping up with the half marathon’s training schedule, and last week I did a nine mile run.
I haven’t set myself a target of how much I want to raise, I just want to raise as much as I can really. Lots of very kind and generous people gave towards my 10k last year, so to increase what I got last year and build on that would be fantastic.
You can support me on give.net/bevruns, or Nicky on justgiving.com/fundraising/ns-bhcm, alternatively, you can contact the mission direct by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also support us on the day if you want to! More details about the run can be found here – https://www.brightonhalfmarathon.com/”
Thank you so much Bev and Nicky. We are looking forward to hearing more about the run soon!
