Jane runs 'Hard as Snails' 10K runA fundraising project by Jane Hulbert
Last September I joined 'Run Active Guildford' running group. I turned up in totally inappropriate running gear and stood out like a sore thumb. I ran for 1 minute and could hardly breathe while the rest of the group ran on ahead - I honestly thought I would never return!
However with the help of the amazing trainer, Linsey, and her relentless encouragement, I persevered. I also fed my shopping addiction by buying a new piece of running equipment every week. Four months on, I have now reached, on a good day, 5K. I have entered the Hard as Snails on 28th June 2017 which is a grueling 10K run. I mistakingly thought the word 'snail' meant it was easy but apparently it is very challenging, incorporating steep hills.
Please encourage me by donating to this worthy cause.. proceeds will go to CornerHouse who provide emotional and wellbeing support in Woking, Runnymede and Spelthorne.
