I, Alice Heywood, the most lazy 19 year old in the entire world, have signed up for the Great North Run 2015. That's 13.1 miles. 20.9 km. For the record, I can't run a mile. Not one mile. It's one year away tomorrow.
I'll put it into perspective for you. When I told my family I had signed up to do it they literally laughed in my face and thought I was joking.
I've thought about doing it for months and finally, after a recent personal problem, I decided to do it. I am running for MIND charity which is a charity for mental health.
So wish me luck as I delve into the world of running and *hopefully* become one of those weirdos (I'm joking) that get addicted to running.
