Jo Cawthorn … #MySurferChallengeStory.
I have always thought how cool and fun the surfers challenge looked and wondered (tongue in cheek) what it would be like to participate in it, however i was way to unfit and lazy to make 🥵🙈
At the end of may I decided that it was time for me to get off the couch and start getting more active but still procrastinated to a large degree … I was even hesitant to join a Parkrun as I figured it would take forever to complete 5km! if i survived at all. A friend finally convinced me to give it a go and i actually survived 🙂
I then decided that I didn’t only want my getting fit to benefit me but that i could maybe find a way of making it into something that would do some good for others at the same time and that is when i got the crazy idea to go from being a couch potato to a 10km run/walker in an effort to raise funds for the Amatola Haven Frail Care in Stutterheim.
So I am registered to complete not only my very first Surfers Challenge event but also my very first 10km race.
To say I am nervous would be an understatement but I am also excited and hopeful to succeed for all those who have believed in me and donated to such a worthy cause.
