I’m In A Pantomime

If you don’t know me, I’m quite shy, you wouldn’t have thought I’d be in a pantomime. See, I have Asperger’s Syndrome but I’m always pushing myself to do new things, meet new people and break out of my comfort zone. Now you may be thinking what on earth does this post have to do with running, well it has actually got a lot to do with running.

What Is Belief?

I think belief is something people need more of in society, many people go about there daily lives and don’t tend to push themselves.

Now That’s A Challenge

Things have been difficult for me lately, but that doesn’t mean I’m not up for a challenge. Yes, this challenge is a tough one, it’s to do 100 squats a day, everyday in February all for one amazing charity, Teenage Cancer Trust. I know this will benefit my running too as I’ll develop stronger hamstrings and glutes which will help power my runs. It’s going to be difficult though as 100 squats a day is going to hurt a lot, I mean a lot, but I’ll get through the challenge, it’s just getting in the right mindset. I’ll also be posting videos of my challenge everyday so please don’t forget to donate.

Please donate and give everything you can on my JustGiving page.
