Yep, you read it right… I just signed us all up for our first ever family race. Eep. New York Bakery Co.’s Global Energy Race, Rother Valley Country Park Sheffield 2018
New York Bakery Co.’s Global Energy Race, Rother Valley Country Park Sheffield 2018
We don’t run. I don’t run, my OH doesn’t run… our toddler… well, yes, he runs… (but his idea of running is not this type of running!). But, if you remember back in January one of the New Years resolutions I had was to start getting involved with charities. We just organised Never Grow Up which was a family fundraiser for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, and now I’ve partnered up with New York Bakery Co who are sponsoring this years fantastic Global Energy Race at Rother Valley Country Park, raising money for The Trussell Trust.
I’m excited because… I’ve never done a charity race or any type of running race before, I’m not fit or trained to run at all so this will be a good challenge, I’m inspired to do this race to raise money for charity, and I’ve never been to Rother Valley Country Park before, despite having lived in Sheffield all my life! (Actually… I probably have been before, but I do not remember!).
I’m nervous because… I’ve never done a race before, I’m unfit, I’m not a runner, I’ll probably be slacking behind everyone else, I don’t know if Eric is going to participate, and I’m worried I’m going to be a sweaty mess making a big fool of myself. But sod it, let’s do it.
Am I going to win? Far from it, we’re not competing to win but we are joining in by doing the family 3k race. I would love it if you could join us. It would be fantastic to see more families there. SIGN UP HERE.
