C: 10K for Unicef

Limassol

Lovely people of the internet, life is about being planning things spontaneously. So I’ve made plans and although it’s a month in advance this is quite a sudden plan to be making.

During one of my power point presentation assignments on HIV I remembered an old video by UNICEF and tried to track it down. It reminded me of the charities work and how important it is. This year I’m lucky enough to be heading to Limassol in Spring and it just so happens the dates are right and I will be in town for the Limassol Marathon. I’ve booked my place and I’ll be running 10K. It’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this and have been training on and off. I’ll be running to raise money for UNICEF and although it’s a big charity it’s easy for people to forget about because of it’s large profile and how important it is to continue to give money to these hugely important organisations.

So far I’ve raised £133.75 from friends and family. I’m hoping to complete the run in under an hour but hey that’s very optimistic thinking. Would mean the world if any of you guys could sponsor me and help contribute to the fantastic work UNICEF do.

  1. Well done for taking the leap. I started running and ran my first 10k last year. I am sure you will do well. Best of luck.

      Keith thank you so much for sponsoring me! Means a lot, so pleased with how this is going, I haven’t even ran this 10K yet but want to start training for the next big run! Addictive much? Thanks again!

    • I am sure you will have lots of fun. I ran my first 10k last November and although it was tough going I had a great time. How’s the training going?

        Training is alright, got caught in a 6 minute snow storm today and almost froze, slightly different conditions from Limassol and I’m a bit worried about the heat. But aside from that it’s ok I did 7.5K on the treadmill two days ago and I didn’t feel too tired.
