What made you sign up for the Nivea 5X5 Challenge?
Met up with Steve for a run where he was telling me about his transition from sailor to runner and how it all evolved into the Ladybird Foundation. I was touched and could think of no other cause more noble than to bring happiness to these children. I wanted to be part of it.
Have you ever attempted such a distance before?
I only started ‘running’ in September 2014 and to date the most I’ve managed is the Half Marathon….so not even close.
What are your thoughts as you look forward to the challenge ahead?
It’s a massive commitment. It’s gone from a leisurely weekly run to a 6 day a week training plan. This intensive training through summer will only make it harder, but no one said it would be easy. It’s all about raising as much money as possible to turn dreams to reality.
