In the running calendar Winter is usually the season when people take a break from the races and concentrate on recovering and building muscles and speed. However, over the past few years The London Winter Run has made the cold snaps a little more interesting – to put in mildly! Excitingly I will be running this 10k, the second time I have done so, with a whole host of wonderful friends and bloggers. And it would be amazing if you could join us too.
When the 5th of February comes around it’ll have almost been a year since I have run a 10k. In that time I have run other races yes, but also been more injured than ever before. And while I am excited to do this I am also very, very nervous. I am hoping by the new year I will have healed and in fact I do have a doctor’s appointment coming up. Let’s hope my doctor is well versed with running injuries!
It was Elle from Keep It SimpELLE who offered this to me and a whole host of other bloggers. I have my doubts and worries but the reasons to say yes outweighed them all: this 10k goes straight through the heart of London and it’s beautiful, plus the amazing volunteers dress up as polar bears and hug you as you run by and finish.
