    I will be completing a 10K run tonight for the British Heart Foundation!

    The main reason that I am doing this is because one of my best friends recently lost her father very suddenly from a heart attack, this was a very sad shock to us all. I will be running in his memory and will be wearing his name on a heart on my back.

    Another reason for me to run is that on the flipside of this very sad situation, another of my close friends is very fortunate to be currently making a good recovery from a heart operation which saved his life.

    The British Heart Foundation do excellent work researching heart conditions and and through this research they have saved many lives. This is not the only work they do though, The British Heart Foundation also spend a lot of time advertising the benefits of exercise and the impact that being fit can have on your heart health. I have lost just over 7 stone in weight through dieting and getting fit, this has gone a long way to helping to improve my heart health but I still have a long way to go to be at a healthy weight!

    I weigh 20 stone at the moment and I am very proud to be able to do this and think that this is a huge step to prove that you don't have to be skinny to be fit as well as proving the benefits of exercising whilst dieting.

    Absolutely no pressure but if you would like to sponsor me I would very much appreciate it and you can do so at British Heart Foundation - Alyssa Ramsey's Fundraising Page

    Also done, good luck for tonight. Can I ask if the run is just for BHF or can you sign up to do these things for your own charity?

    Thank you Wairimu!
    This is just a BHF run, I have no idea about finding runs where you can do it for your own charity - sorry!
