Challenge #1: Run 155k

I have just signed up for my first challenge of the run 155k.

Now before you think I've lost the run of myself (pardon the pun) let me quickly explain that I don't run it all in the one day!!!
It's all to do with Bressie's R.H.Y,T,H,M
Running Helping You To Healthy Mind.
You can walk/jog/run 5k a day during the month of January for which you donate E1 for every 5k. Then there is a group run on Jan 29th In Lilliput along with Bressie.
For those of you not in the know, there is a place called Lilliput just outside Mullingar. Jonathon Swift spent a lot of time there on his holliers, so when it came to writing his classic novel, Gulliver's Travels, he used its name. And NO, it is not populated by little people!!!
The total of E30 goes towards promoting mental health among young people, a very worthy cause.
And that is the reason I am packing my sports gear along with my glad rags as I head to Killarney for the New Year's weekend.
I will be running/crawling around Muckross gardens on New Year's Day if it kills me.
Now if only Bressie would be at the finishing line it might make it a bit easier to do!!!
