So theres this thing, called time…and it manages to run away from us occasionally! OOPS.
I suddenly realized the other day that I hadn’t updated/blogged on the page about us actually completing our 10k on 31st May. My deepest apologies….
So as you may or may not know, this page was set up by myself following the decision my siblings and I made to run Bristol 10k to raise money for MIND in memory of our dad, David Rose. (for more information please take a look around the website)
We had raised over £1000 pure from asking for donations instead of flowers after Dad’s death and decided we wanted to raise more and give something back to everyone that had supported us, and had donated.
So despite none of us being keen runner, my sister, brother, his girlfriend and myself
signed up……scary stuff!!
We all had ups and downs in training, and at times our lack of, but the 31st came around far too quickly and the 10k was upon us!
It was a gruelling day but all four of us completed it in the following times:
Sophie (myself) 01:01:03
It was an unbelieveable experience, and I may have finally caught the running bug (although i’ve only been once since…so dont hold me to it guys!)
After a big push with the fundraising we have reached a staggering £3,162.32!
completely smashing our target of £2500! Its safe to say I let a lil tear or two go once we went over the target! It is safe to say I was extremely proud to wear my MIND T-shirt, and I am sure Dad was looking down on us 😀
SO NOW WHAT??
Well I fully intend to raise more money doing things I never thought I could, and I will continue to write blogs and raise awareness for mental health. So keep your eyes peeled…
BUT FOR NOW, here are some pictures and a video from the day….PROOF!
