Run Fat Girl Run

So today is the day. Tonight I will be jogging (crawling) 5K for The British Heart Foundation in Canary Wharf.

Why did I agree to do it?

(Because I'm STUPID?)

Well why not? I have flirted with running for a long time now. I am never going to be a runner, but I really enjoy moving my body (oooohhh-eerrrrrrr missus) and I want to be fit and healthy and find walking and jogging a great form of cheap exercise, if I can raise some money for a great charity then all the better.

The British Heart Foundation is a charity close to my families heart and I will always support them. I

f you would like to support me then I have set up a Just Giving Page

Even the smallest amount helps, (and makes me feel like I'm moving my fat arse for something other than just being a stubborn cow who should've said no)

I really would love your support, even if you can't donate, feel free to share this post, leave me a comment or tell someone about it.

I will let you know how I get on tomorrow.

  1. Wishing you all the best! hope it goes well! Nafisah xo

  2. Enjoy it! My running tip, you 'non athlete running for charity women' carry your arms too high. It makes it harder work, you are using strength holding arms up by your chest, Swing them lower, down by your thighs/hips to above your waist. relax your arms from time to time, make a conscious effort to do so. You'll be amazed the relaxation you get by dropping your arms from time to time. It's not far really, but it's hot, take more water than you think you need. Go Kellie!

  3. Well Bloody Done! I keep meaning to ask how the running is coming along, I started the Couch 2 5k in an effort to sort my ass out (literally) - too long have I spent believing I was built for comfort and not for speed.

    Remember to keep hydrated, before with water, during with water and after with wine!

    It's really good of you to give up your time and sweat for such a worthy cause, Enjoy! x
