As some of you might know I like doing obstacle course runs where I crawl through mud, climb through tight spaces and swim through bogs. I’ve never been particularly good at straight out running so I thought i’d set this as my next challenge.
A friend of mine wants to do Run Disney next year which is a 5km and half marathon (22km or 13 mile) run through the Disneyland Paris parks before opening. In preparation I thought I better book something smaller to see how I get on with running this much which is exactly what i’ve done.
In January I am planning on doing the Winer Run Series which is a 10km run through the streets of London, and yes i’m sure it will be cold. I’m definitely going to need to start my couch to 10km app now and hopefully the fact that Christmas is a month before (and i’m in Morocco for a week over NY) I shouldn’t be left lagging behind. I can hope!
The lopped course will see the runners go past the London Eye, St Paul’s, Big Ben and other landmarks so at least the surroundings will be good. There are even some ‘snow zones’ where you’ll be blasted with some form of fake snow (how festive).
If anyone fancies setting themselves a New Years challenge you can see all the events which are going to happen next year, including the 10km i’ll be doing at the end of January, right here. If you sign up to any event next year you can get £3 off entry with using the code: SIMPELLE
