Lula runs (kind of)

125% Raised
Thank you for visiting my donation page. I know it's annoying with so many people asking for donations these days. I hate to do it. But having been thinking about it I felt it was right to open a donation page so that if anyone wants to donate, they can. My name is Lu and I am kind of a runner. Lol. I suffer with a chronic invisible illness that affects my physical and mental health. I'm a bit of a crazy lady and like to set myself challenges. Having been ill for so long, I like to push myself to do things that I'm unsure if I can actually do. Hehehe. This September I will be taking part in a 46 mile run around Bristol called Greenman. (I say 46 miles but if I get lost then it'll be more!) I will have 12 hours to complete the course to meet the cut off time. However, if for any reason I don't meet the official cut off time, I intend to keep going anyway to make the distance. Aside from the physical challenge this will be, ultra running is known for its mental challenge; needing to keep going even when things feel unbearable. My chosen charity is a local one for mothers. As a mum myself, I know all too well how hard it is, how unsure it can all feel and how lonely it can get. I've also suffered with post natal depression and wished I had sought out some support instead of hiding away in the kitchen. Mothers for mothers are the support I wish I had. They offer groups, counselling, support and so much more to mothers in the area to help when things may feel like they are unbearable. I've put a target down because I couldn't leave it blank, I haven't got a set amount as anything would be helpful to the charity to be able to continue their work. If you can spare a bit of change for this challenge, I'd be really grateful. Thanks for reading. Lu x

I can think of better ways to spend 12hours, but fair play
