Ive watched the Hastings Half Marathon every year for the last few years and every year said "I'm going to do it next year". Well this year I've signed up for it. But I've never ran anywhere near the 23 km distance and all it's gnarly hills thats going to be in front of me. In fact the furthest I've ran is 13k and that was only last week, and the whole time all I kept saying to myself was "I can't do this, I don't want to do this, it hurts, why am I doing this?"
So now, the carrot on the stick would be to be able to raise some much needed funds for my chosen charity; Hastings Community of Sanctuary.
For those that don't know a few years ago I was very deeply involved in the refugee crisis in Calais and I ended up with PTSD and haven't been able to do anything to help since which hangs heavy on my heart. I've observed the great work Hastings Community of Sanctuary do and and helping them might be the motivation I need to man up and get through it, the pain I'm going to feel is nothing close to what the people this charity supports have been though.
So please help me achieve my goal by sponsoring me, maybe even if it's as little as what that cappuccino was about to cost you?
