I think I have gone mad…

So I am either overly ambitious or stark raving mad, but I have just signed up for the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Half Marathon in September.  Yes, I have only just started running, and I know that to run that whole distance by the end of September may be beyond me, but I figure that I know that I can walk that whole distance now without any difficulty and by that stage I will have trained enough so that I can run a good percentage of it.  I will not be breaking any records, but I will work to towards running as much as I possibly can and breaking my own personal goal.  My main concern is to be at least fast enough to make all the cut off points in time before they close.  I have checked out last year’s points this morning and I think that it is doable. I have also decided to fundraise for Cerebral Palsy Alliance in this event.  I am a special education teacher and I have worked with lots of children with this condition.  They have inspired me for years and I feel like I want to help them in some small way. The link to my fundraising page is below if you think you might like to help ( I have no expectations of this at all)….


  1. What a great goal (and fantastic cause)! All the best with it, Sharon. 🙂

  2. Wow!! What a goal! Good luck with your training, I bet this will really inspire you to work hard 🙂

    • Thanks, not sure whether I’m excited or scared at this point…onwards and upwards!

  3. That’s amazing well done, your as mad as me! I’m doing a dublin rock n roll half marathon in August. Walked the distance before, can’t finish 10 in under 70 mins (yet) though. Get a proper training programme, stick to it and I’m sure you’ll be awesome 🙂 good luck!

    • Thanks, I think we’re both in the same place. Good luck with your training and keep me posted 🙂
