The very first Up & Running course started this morning. We’ve got a wonderfully global group, with runners joining us from Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.
This week is the Warm-Up Week, with no actual running yet. It’s all about mental preparation. The Up & Runners will be thinking about their goals and motivations so they’re all focused for the eight weeks of training to come. From what I’ve read on the Course forums so far, we’ve got a highly motivated and determined group of women!
If you’d like to join us there’s still time to register. To support relief efforts following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, we are donating £15 from every 5K Course purchased this week to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
