We are two runners who started from the couch and are now running half marathons.
Our passion is running and something that we enjoy together but usually running separately.
Well one of us the quicker one!!
We know that it is sometimes so easy to not bother going out for a run. Life, kids, weather, something can get in the way and the next thing you know, you feel down because you didn't go out.
That's why we know that setting ourselves a goal helps. If we have a half marathon or other run coming up we get the miles in.
We also enjoy monthly mile challenges, and decided to set up our own monthly mile challenge!
As runners of different abilities, one thing that we were conscious of was that everyone should feel included. Doesn't matter what your speed, your distance, if you run all the way or walk, the most important thing is that you challenged yourself, you got out there, and you did it!!
This is a commercial venture for us both but we have decided to donate a percentage of the proceeds to charity. The first charity we have chosen, Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland is close to our hearts in that we lost Kirsteen's dad suddenly in 2014 to a heart attack and more recently my dad in October 2017 to pneumonia and COPD following pancreatic cancer.
Our first chosen charity can be found on our charities page, where you can also nominate a charity for other challenges that will be happening as we go.
