Ackworth Road Runners Favourite Race shirt challenge

Debbie’s choice

When we were asked to run in our favourite shirt his weekend, it was an easy choice… my MS Trust T-Shirt with the sparkly name (yes, I have more than one!). Joe got this one customised ready for Race to the Stones in 2018, after I saw and loved a running mate’s 10 in 10 top! It’s my favourite (obviously!) and has seen plenty of action over the last few years:

💙 Race to the Stones (100k of pain with Victoria)

💙 My first marathon (the Athens walkathon option after injuring my foot a couple of months earlier)

💙 Bashing out a double marathon at Endure 24 (with a cast of ARR extras)

Image may contain: 2 people, including Wendy Berry, people playing sports, people standing, sky, shoes, grass, tree, outdoor and nature

💙 Great North Run Mk III and the virtual version at Ladybower this year (GNR is where my relationship with this great charity began)

💙 The International Women’s Day 5k, last “real” race before lockdown being beasted at the end by Sara (MS affects twice as many women as men)

Image may contain: 1 person, playing a sport, dancing, standing and outdoor

💙 Climbing Mount Snowdon on my 40th birthday (a rare cloud and crowd free day)

💙 Supporting Joe for his virtual London Marathon race around Barnsley

I always feel like I have to try my best when I’m wearing MS Trust blue and its a wonderful reminder of what running has allowed me to achieve and gain over our years of fundraising. Over £25,000 for them so far and a priceless set of friends and memories for us. 💙💙💙

It was a really tough choice with so many great memories and experiences over the last few years

Had to go for last years Hardmoors 60, I feel so lucky to have got to do this race (one week later it would have been cancelled) in 2020.It was an absolutely brilliant experience running along the coast all day in perfect weather, with Debbie popping up every so often with more food. It’s definitely my biggest running achievement and a massive PB as a bonus, and lots of tears

Also a great weekend away for my birthday, and the last time we went to the pub. Even added the trail outlaws buff to represent both Dark Skies (first ever night race) and Branches and Bays (Trunce at the coast)
