Hampton Court Half Marathon
Although I enjoyed running throughout my school years, I never ever expected to be run half a marathon! After lots and lots of persuasion from my older sister, I eventually signed up! I saw the challenge as a personal one, whilst supporting the work of two charities close to my heart, one of which was danceaid.
So why danceaid?
Danceaid is a fantastic charity capturing the energy of dance to transform the lives of vulnerable children both here in the UK and beyond. As an individual who is passionate about dance, I think it is important we enhance opportunities to participate in dance, and what better way to do it then raise money for a good cause all at the same time. I chose danceaid as one of my chosen charities to increase the knowledge of their work amongst my dance networks.
How was it?
Training in winter was hard and often meant having to brave rubbish weather and pushing past my own fatigue levels. However I am pleased to say I completed my first ever half-marathon in 02:22:21. Thanks to everyone that kindly donated, not only did I manage to raise my target, but I exceeded it.
You guys did me proud!
