For those of you that don’t know me I’m James. Husband to Laura and father to Sophia. I’m just your average 33 year old unfit bloke carrying a few extra pounds due to an unhealthy diet.
Being overweight on the wrong side of 30 but still being young enough to tackle life I’ve decided that it is time to make some positive changes to myself through exercise. In order to do this I feel I need to set some clear goals which will allow me to push myself.
That being said I have decided that over the next 365 days I will collectively cover 2022 miles. This will be done through Walking, Running and Cycling. Meaning I will need to cover at least 5.54 miles a day to achieve my goal.
With this personal challenge I am hoping for people to sponsor my exercises with all proceeds going to Derian House Children’s Hospice. Derian House help children and young people, whose lives are too short, to make happy memories in an environment of fun, respect and above all, high quality care. Derian House Children’s Hospice looks after children and young people living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions (as well as their siblings, parents and grandparents). They do this in a variety of ways… For more information on Derian House please check out their website www.derianhouse.co.uk.
Having raised money for Derian house before, I know how much donations big or small can make such a positive impact to a child or family member. Life is about making memories no matter what the timescale. I have set an initial target of £500 over the year, but it would be would be amazing if I could raise £1 for every mile covered.
Daily steps do not count (Walking around work, shopping, house)
Each exercise has to be GPS tracked (Though my watch)
Daily average is 5.54 though not set.
Daily average variance can be caught up.
All workouts and variances will be recorded.
2022 miles must be completed by 08/06/2022
Cycling - The total miles covered is only worth half of the total cycled. So every 2 miles is only worth 1 mile towards to 2022 total.
