If I am honest I have spent a large proportion of 2014 sitting in front of my computer on facebook with hundreds of notifications from 38 team honk groups around the country. But on Sunday that changed. On Sunday we could finally see that the Team Honk Lands End to John O Groats relay we’d dreamt about for Sport Relief was going to happen. So I closed my laptop, picked up my new Hi-Tec Infinity trainers and I went for a run. It felt amazing.
Yesterday Team Honk announced the incredible details of the relay, over on the Team Honk blog. This is the rough map I drew to keep myself sane while trying to help the regions plan their route.
People cried when they saw how the route brought people together across the UK. It was emotional. So today, spurred on by that, I went for another run. I always know when my running shoes need replacing, my shins start to ache, I find it harder than usual. With my new Hi Tech V Lite Infinity trainers there has been a spring in my step. These trainers are comfy and flexible and best of all really lightweight so it barely feels like you are wearing them.
I like the colours and that they don’t look like some kind of weird futuristic sculpture with the obligatory flashes of pink most women’s trainers seem to sport. I wouldn’t feel daft wearing them with my jeans and will probably use them for walking too.
I think I am back up to a comfortable 4k, by the end of this week hopefully 5k. I’m doing a mixture of the relay and official Sport Relief events. Cycling around 75k across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and running 10k in London. So I need to get back up to 10k, and get back on my bike!I’m really excited about the relay and about making a difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa, I would love you to sponsor me. I am also finding myself bounding with energy and enthusiasm in general, I’ve written about it time and time again, but running really does make me very happy.Thank you to Hi-Tec for my V-Lite Infintity trainers, and for getting involved with supporting Team Honk once again this year. Just spotted, V Lites are on offer now, reduced from £89.99, to £59.99.
There is still time to join in the blogger and friends relay if you are quick, so hop on over.
The all important sponsorship link. Thanks for making a difference.
