The running update for this week is short and fast, just like my training runs. I'll write them in kilometres this once for the metrically minded amongst you :) Monday 10K in 51 minutes. Tuesday working until 8pm so no run. Wednesday 10K in 49minutes33, the first time I went under 50 minutes in training this year for 10K and I wasn't even going full tilt, WOOHOO!! Thursday 11.5K in 1hr00mins.
The plans for the weekend are a 7.5K tonight as I am going out (booze free) later. Saturday morning 15K and Sunday 24.5K. Sunday will be my last long run before Great Limerick Run Marathon 7 days later!! This will be marathon number 5 out of 12 marathons in 12 months.
And here's where I need your help. I'm leaving you 4 options. (Please note doing nothing is NOT a valid 5th option).
1- Run a race this year of any length and get sponsored as part of my 12marathonsin12months team for Gorta Self Help Africa (picture on this blog).
2- Collect a sponsorship card and materials from me and collect money from your friends for my challenge for Gorta Self Help Africa (mention on this blog).
3- Get businesses to take a call from me to discuss corporate sponsorship (packages available from me at 083-3008963 or Patrick@forward2success.com )
4- Organise a fundraiser event with your club, network, organisation, office, sports and social, golf society etc... and I'll make an appearance and speak (I'm a motivational speaker).
So here's my wee challenge to all of you: Which of the 4 can you do??? Thanks in advance and talk to you Monday!!
