Good evening friends, and Happy Blogmas!
For the next 30 days I’ll be posting about everything Christmas! I did blogmas last year, my goodness, that was alot, and told myself I wasnt going to do it this year… but, I was having a look at the calendar, and it makes sense to as I have loads of holiday plans, so I thought I’d take you all along for the ride.
Even though this happened last Sunday, I couldn’t not mention it.
The Frosty 5k raises money for The Wessex Cancer Trust, an event that is held all over the county through out winter.
This was the Isle of Wight’s first Frosty 5k and they did pretty well! Over 400 people signed up for the event!
To kick off the event we were called to the barn where we did a 10minute warm up.
Nothing like dozens of santas, elfs, and Christmas jumper wearing folk doing starjumps and lunges to get you in the Christmas spirit!
3 work colleagues and I gave the run a go, luckily the weather was dry with a slight breeze, although it had been raining the days leading up to it, so there were a fair few puddles and a majority of the path was rather muddy, but it was great fun!
Along the way you were cheered on, which was lovely, and a choir who greeted you singing christmas Carol’s to boost moral as you reached the top of a hill, minutes from the finish line.
Although the run was not a race, I was aware of my personal best time, and did keep an eye on my pace… and beat it! Whoop whoop
Although sponsership is still being collected and counted, an incredible £12,000 was raised in just one day!
I cant wait to take part in this run agagin next year, as I said theres many being held in the UK and US… look out for one local to you!
