You may not know who I am, but thank you anyway!

There comes a time when you achieve more if you’re held accountable for something.

Am I right?

As you might know already, I’ve started training for a 10K run in July and raising money for The Rotary Club of Guildford’s Eye Project which focuses on avoidable blindness across the developing world.

I am beyond grateful for the response and the donations that I have received so far. I know that every pound donated will have an impact on those who are visually impaired, especially because it only takes £5 for life saving operation.

Since signing up for the run with some friends, I have discovered the The Running Bug, which devises a training plan according to your fitness level. It portions out the training into manageable chunks during the week….as long as you stick to it!

After a long day in class or labs, the last thing I want to do is to go to the gym or go for a run. This is why I have always preferred to wake up early and go in the morning. Lately though, it’s been a struggle to actually get out of bed and down to the gym.

Yep, we’ve all experienced it –

Just 5 more minutes’ turning into…’I overslept by an hour!’.

Receiving sponsorship for the run though makes me more inclined to actually follow through. Not only do I owe it to myself to give it my best shot but I owe it to the people sponsoring me with their hard-earned money not to mention of course, the people that will benefit from it all.

The more people that seem to know about the run, my training and my goal to do it in a certain time, the more accountable I feel to making it happen.

So, you might now know me, but thank you.

Thank you for making me press snooze, one less time this morning!

So Today: What can you follow through with?
