Make October a month of loving you: run a Month of Miles for Diabetes UK.
It’s your race, run at your pace. Choose a distance that suits you – a couple of miles a week, a half marathon over the month, or even a mile a day – and get ready to feel healthier in mind and body.
This will be a month of feeling your heart thump. Feeling butterflies tickle. Feeling that sweat trickle. Of choosing to power through. Of being amazed at what you can do. This will be a month of loving you.
It’s a month of putting yourself first, but with the heart-warming feeling you’ll get from being part of something bigger. Because by getting sponsored for every mile you run, you’ll be joining Diabetes UK in transforming the lives of people living with diabetes.
