Just a little over 2 weeks now until the Santa Fun Run on 24th November for Alzheimers Dementia Support.
One of the Alzheimer’s Society’s top tips for reducing the risk of developing dementia is to stay socially active by joining a club, so with this in mind I have joined my local running club The Blackwater Valley Runners.
Running with a group helps me to run longer distances and build some stamina and the company helps the miles go by more enjoyably.
The club meets at 7pm and we set off into the cold evening for what I thought would be a gentle 4 mile run. There were 15 other runners in my group and I was able to have a chat with most of them during the run – except when we were running uphill when I needed to save my breath!
6.5 miles later, I arrived back at the club house, having run further than I was expecting but very pleased that I had kept up with the group.
Guess the time competition
