A Long Time to Keep Running!

https://www.runforall.com/community/news/

So today we got the news that COVID 19 has hampered our Sheffield 10k plans for this year 😒. Whilst this comes as a disappointment, the good news is we’ve all been given the opportunity to be reregistered for the same event in September next year. But as that seems soooo far away, we’re hoping to run our own (socially distant) race on the original race date this year (as long as the guidance allows that is!). With only a handful of us, I’m sure we’ll easily be able to run and be COVID compliant too. So that’s two races we’re doing – the Team Jess 10k and the official Sheffield 10k next year too. Now if that’s not value for sponsorship (keeping us all training for the next 14 months) then I don’t know what is!

Team Jess Anthem

I couldn’t believe it when I logged on to my emails to find a ‘Team Jess’ running track in my inbox, written and performed by my very talented colleague and friend Trevor, with backing vocals from his wife and daughter too! Wow! Whilst not his normal style (this is not Trev’s first performing venture!) the quick beat will help me keep going when the going gets tough… especially round those hills in Sheffield! Thanks Trev, you’re a legend!

Fundraising In Full Bloom

Just like my beautiful ‘Jessica Roses’, which are growing at an alarming rate of knots in the garden, our fundraising is in full bloom! I woke to a lovely figure of over £2,000 on the current JustGiving page, which is just incredible given we’ve only been raising for the last 36 hours. 😀 Team Jess are in full training mode now (although we are hoping for swift healing of various knee and toe injuries – no pun intended!), and even saw some keen team members training late last night and early this morning – that is dedication 😀
