Welcome to endurun24.co.uk!
Are you interested in running? Then you are in the right website! In this site, you will know some of the basic facts about running and I will share my love for running and all my experiences as a runner.
Who am I?
My name is Abby. I am in my 20s and I live in London. I work as one of the customer support representatives for LeoVegas. That means I get to stay and work from home. It also means I spend a lot of time just sitting in front of a computer.
So why should I listen to a remote worker as she rambles on about running? Well, if my passion for running is not enough reason, then it is because I can prove to you that running is for everyone. After spending hours sitting in front of a computer, I have chosen to use running as my physical exercise.
I have to admit that I was not a fan in the beginning. Running seemed odd to me and I would rather get a membership in the gym to sweat away the hours that I sat for the day.
But when a friend of mine convinced me to join her to train for a marathon, I figured, why not? It was worth a try.
We woke up early one morning and dressed up to ward off the chill. Soon, we were running across the park and through a beautiful trail.
And my life was never the same again. I found myself waking up early each morning for the next few days running – even on my own. When I ran, I found a sense of relaxation and tranquility. I was alone in my thoughts as I ran. My deepest thoughts usually emerge while running and I find a sort of cleansing in that.
Of course, every time I beat my distance and time record, that is just icing on the cake.
I have joined a couple of marathons but I have to admit that I am not really in it for the win. I just want to beat my own personal record so I am not pressuring myself into anything. It is exhilarating to know when I have set a new personal record. It fuels my desire to run more.
As you can see, running for me is more of a hobby and passion. It has gone beyond just a way to exercise. It has become a way of life for me. Over time, I have become so passionate about it that I have decided to create this blog, endurun24.co.uk. I want to share my experiences as a runner and give you tips on how you can use it to make your life better.
So what can you find on my blog? Just a couple of things that only runners will appreciate.
Mostly, I will be sharing my experience as a runner. I will also point out certain places in London where you can go for a nice run. From time to time, when there is an event, I will be writing about it. I will try to give you insights about races that you can join – specifically those I plan to attend this summer.
Basically, you will get to know my life. I will share with you things that I do, how my work affects my daily schedules and my plans to continue running until I am old and grey.
As you can see, my blog will not really convince you to run. My plan is to share my life and leave it at that. Whether you want to emulate how I live it and how I have let running enrich my life, that is entirely up to you.
So welcome and feel free to enjoy what I will share through endurun24.co.uk. It is a part of me and I really hope you get something of value out of it.
