Chose an object, place or event and record it in as many ways as possible.
I have chosen to base my summer project on the annual Marathon event. A Marathon consists of running over 26 miles and I have no doubt that it will take a lot of determination and persistence to achieve it. After running regularly for over three months, running a marathon has become my ultimate goal but I plan to take part in multiple fund raising runs along the way. Currently, I am signed up for a half marathon which I will complete in Silverstone in 2017, and the Helmdon Hurler (5 miles) which I will take part in during August.
I started running not only for fitness but to support the well deserved charity mind. Mind is an admirable organisation which has the goal of supporting those who are suffering from metal health problems. They try to raise awareness for those who are suffering and state ‘we wont give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect’.
To begin my project, I plan to document my runs on this blog and record any progress I make on this website and in my sketchbook. My aim is to run at least three times a week. Alongside the enjoyment of running, I have hope that I will gain inspiration for my artwork that will reflect the journey I have begun.
