Edgar’s Gift challenge t-shirts!

So, normally you have to have been there, done that and then you get your t-shirt but thanks to K Kong Events we have got our t-shirts before our events have started!

Lydia Edkins and Sarah Jelly are taking on 10 challenges in 2014 to raise money for Edgar's Gift

T-shirts donated by King Kong Events

To give you an update of what we’ve been doing in our fabulous new tees, last week Lydia conquered her seven mile run to work which is absolutely fantastic – very impressed with this! She also managed to get her bike fixed this weekend and will be back on that this week.

I completed a more modest four mile run and managed a personal best for average running pace at 8 minutes 40 seconds per mile.

We both ran just under five miles on Sunday morning. We were hoping that we might kickstart our tans however, the clouds were persistent and the sun didn’t grace us with its presence until the very end of the run – typical.

Both of us have been tackling the infamous Insanity workouts. We’re starting to feel our muscles awaken and see some muscle definition coming along which will be absolutely essential for the harder obstacle course challenges we will be taking on in the summer.

Another activity we have been contemplating this week to add to our other challenges is walking across hot coals – if anyone has any suggestions of where to do this please do get in touch by commenting below or messaging us on Facebook.

Our first event is on Sunday and it’s the Superhero Fun Run. If you’d like to get involved with this event yourself you can still sign up on the website. We’d love to see your support if you want to come and watch us it’s on Abbey Park in Leicester. We’ll post some pictures of our costumes later in the week!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors so far on our Giving page. Please do get donating, ALL the money we raise will go to charity as we are completely funding the events ourselves.

P.S. We’re open to suggestions for our events. If there’s anything in particular you think we could be doing either while we are doing activities or in between the events to encourage more donations please let us know!
