Librarian on the run!

Continuing ScHARR Library's support for the Sheffield Charity Inspiration for Life, Claire Beecroft (that's me) and Angie Rees from the ScHARR Library team will be running the 'challenging' (for me at least) TenTenTen 10k in Endcliffe Park and Whiteley Woods on Sunday 9th October. This is a trail race with four nasty hills and lots of opportunities to fall over in the mud. Yay!

Inspiration for Life is the charity set up to honour and celebrate the memory of Tim Richardson, a University of Sheffield colleague, who passed away on 5 February 2013 from cancer. More recently, following the passing of another colleague, Victoria Henshaw, also from cancer,  the charity has also dedicated itself to supporting the memory and work of both these special people. They aim to promote lifelong learning, and encourage the public understanding of science through publications, lectures and other events. They also directly support local cancer charities.

I have done a fair few races over the years, though nothing beyond 5k for a while, and you can hunt me down at Sheffield Hallam Parkrun most Saturday mornings- here's me at last week's (just to prove I CAN run):

Better than that - you can run AND operate a smartphone simultaneously.

Multi-tasking par excellence...
