The Nun Run

Sunday, September 11, 2011

I enjoy running. About two years ago I decided to take up the sport in the hope of losing weight - that didn't work for me - but the sport itself has stuck! The gradual progression from a 5km to a 10km is really invigorating, and I laugh now when I think how easy a 5km seems to me when two years ago it was terrifying!
I think I've now concluded that my problem is what I eat, not what I do. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few months with my weight. I found a goal today - I want to be able to fit into my wedding dress again. I'd be very happy about that.
The nun run is a four mile run around the city of London and some of the Southbank wearing a habit. It was inspired by the musical Sister Act, and is now a fundraising event. It is probably the most social running event that I've been too - everyone was chatting with everyone and no one seemed in a hurry to make it to the end with frequent photo stops and posing for tourists! The sun even came out for us.
I have wanted to do this run for some time, and I am glad I finally built up the courage to sign up!
