Running my first official 10k

Hey lil B’s, and welcome to another post. This is an exciting one for me, but I’m not going to lie … I am bricking it! I am going to be running in an official 10k at the end of July in London Town. I don’t feel prepared. HELP!

For those of you that don’t know, I took part in the Endometriosis 10k challenge in March, and fell in love with running to the point where I wanted to do it properly. And yes, by properly I meant where I can get a medal. I will be honest with you, before the pandemic I had NEVER run before, and really wanted nothing to do with it. When I saw people running, they never looked happy and kind of always looked in pain … and that was not the life I wanted. However, as soon as I did my first run, I caught the bug and I have been doing it ever since. Am I any good … No, but I am enjoying myself so what does it matter.

The most important thing about this 10k is that I am doing it with Endometriosis UK to raise money and awareness for this illness. I will go in to detail about Endo to any new readers in a later post, but synopsis … Its shit and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Any money I raise for this run will be going straight to Endometriosis UK so that they can help make a difference from the millions who suffer from this hell and hopefully make things better for the future.

If you would like to donate to this run I will attach a link here. Please don’t feel like you have to, to be honest any support will be much appreciated and will get me through my run. Also if you have any questions or need advice on anything endo related don’t hesitate to ask, information can be hard to find and from my experience getting advice and help from others in a similar situation is best.

P.S I really hope isn’t doesn’t rain … that would not be fun for me!

Until next time…

Chapter 1: New Beginnings

Hello and welcome to The B Word.

If you are new here, I’m Belle and this is my new venture in the blogosphere … The B Word. Some of you might be familiar with my old sight “BelleBlogs” and a wondering to yourself, why have you started from the beginning again when you already had a good following? Well in all honesty … I fell out of love with blogging and what I had built on the internet and the only way I saw myself finding that spark again was by starting completely from scratch. Also, in my mind “BelleBlogs” wasn’t me anymore. I have changed so much since lil 19 year old me starting blogging and to be honest I grew out of my previous blog, thus welcoming “The B Word”.

“The B Word” is going to be my way to express myself and life milestones as a 25 year old still trying to find herself in the craziness of social media, however a lot of the topics from “BelleBlogs” will still come with me (believe me I’ve still got lots to talk about).

We will be exploring all things to do with beauty, living life in your mid twenties and navigating my way through endometriosis, so if any of that sounds interesting to you, feel free to grab a cuppa and stick around.

Until next time …
