Step Out For Yorkshire

I’m stepping out for Yorkshire Cancer Research this May. The challenge I have set myself is Baildon Trig run every day, the equivalent of 80 miles, and it's all to raise money for life-saving cancer research in Yorkshire.

My Activity Tracking

81
mi

My target 80 mi

My miles are saving lives. I’m running up to Baildon Trig Point every day this May to show my support for people affected by cancer in Yorkshire.

1 in 2 people will experience cancer in their lifetime. Yorkshire Cancer Research is an independent cancer charity funding pioneering research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer in the region.

I will run up to Baildon Trig Point and back every day to raise money for this vital cause.  It's not a big distance, but it is a big hill.  Please support my efforts and help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.

My Updates

I Made it! Thanks to everyone who sponsored me - I don't think I would have kept it up without that motivation.

Wednesday 1st Jun
It was really important to me not to let you down. That was the only thing keeping me going at times. I'm going to keep on running up here - but think I might give my legs a few days R&R before I try it again. Thanks again.

Day 30 - why can't May have 30 days like other months

New PB this morning

Friday 27th May
Noticed how much everything has grown in one month. All the trees and plants are much bushier than when I started.

25 - I've been lucky with the weather .. only rained once or twice

Official half way point (15.5 runs)

Monday 16th May
Woke up to a very soggy run this morning. I've been very lucky with the weather so far.

Sunday - almost halfway

Monday 16th May

Saturday's run - enjoyed a lie-in

It's not the night - the shot just came out a bit dark for some reason

Thursday 12th May

This was Wednesday

Thursday 12th May
Almost halfway there - and I'm celebrating running a marathon distance! I can't believe it either.

Some catching up to do - this is Tuesday

Thursday 12th May
Yep .. running out of things to say. Think the piccy says it all. Very lucky to live here.

Early start today

Monday 9th May
Had to get back to get the nippers off to school. Bright and early today.

Honestly - I did make it

Monday 9th May
It was like Blackpool at the top of the hill on Sunday afternoon and I didn't want to appear vain. Those who know the hill will recognise I'm just out of sight!

Could it really be Usain Bolt?

Saturday 7th May
Obviously not. Just wondering if I strike this pose whether it'll make me run any faster!

a new PB on Day 6

Friday 6th May
Legs had some mojo in them this morning. I'm not telling you my time - yet.

Lovely morning earlier today

Thursday 5th May
Officially hit half marathon distance today - 13 miles.

Day 4 - knees are feeling it

Wednesday 4th May
I think downhill is worse on the knees than uphill. Not a runner - so this is a learning exercise too! Updated my target to reflect all you amazing sponsors.

Not much of a view this morning

Tuesday 3rd May

Day 2 - got hit in the face by a bee

Monday 2nd May
Thankfully the bee was half asleep like me and just bounced off and went on her way. Big thank you to everyone who's donated - I can't believe how generous you've been. Far more than I could have hoped to raise.

Had my PT with me today

Sunday 1st May
Unlike me, Kate is a proper runner with all the tech. She measured the run at 2.65 miles, which is closer to 80 miles over the next 30 days. Seems my previous guess was a bit on the low side.

One down - Thirty to go
