When I ran to the top of the world!

Written by Emma. Posted in DDH, Erin and DDH

Today I did it!  I ran to the top of the world!  Ok – so not the world but I went up and up Cleeve Hill.  I ran through a farm, through fields with sheep and I walked up the tough bits!  I ran across a golf course and back down again.  I even got chased by a swarm of flies!

I did almost seven miles of up and down and I can feel it.  My lovely friend Sarah who is a personal trainer assures me that it was the equivalent to about 10 miles of flat running.  This is a new personal best for me.  I did 5 miles on Sunday and today I pretty much doubled it.  Sarah was a teacher for many many years and she used her teacher voice and tactics on me!  I found it tough but I am so pleased with myself.

The run was very pretty and I took in the beautiful countryside I have on my doorstep, it was a fab view from the top.  Once home I soaked my tired legs in a hot bath and I am expecting to feel pain tomorrow! I feel that I can do this. I can finish the Cheltenham half marathon and raise money for Steps.

When I’m running and find it tough I consider why I am doing this. I want to say thank you to Steps for all the support they have given us over the past two years since Erin was diagnosed with DDH. I want to raise more awareness of this condition and how it affects my daughter. Therefore please support me and help me say thank you.

We would love a donation to our cause, every single amount no matter how small or big means the world to us. It shows you care.
