30 May Ireland AM TV3 Presenter Sinead Desmond takes on a new challenge for #TeamEVB
We are getting an amazing response to our competition for a chance to run with TV3’s top presenter Sinead Desmond, motivational speaker and all round inspiration Sinead Kane and supreme fitness and health blogger Ursula Walsh. On the run up to the event we asked Sinead Desmond how she was doing and how she was feeling about being asked to be Sinead Kane’s guide on the day?
‘Hello again to all you of you mini-marathoners! Not long to go now! I hope your training is going well and that you’re managing to stay injury free. As a veteran marathon runner once said to me, “If you don’t make it to the start line, you’ll never make it to the finish line!” Of course we all get niggles, but the key thing is if something hurts stop! I’ve had problems with my right hip for years. And only recently, thanks to my physio, I discovered I have a tear to a part of my hip, which will ultimately need surgery. But for the time being the pain isn’t too bad, lots of Epsom salt baths and running in my EVB capris seems to be keeping it in check!
Sinead Kane the amazing visually impaired runner has asked me to act as her guide for this years WMM. Which is a huge thrill for me as she’s an incredibly inspirational woman! Although I am very nervous at the prospect, I don’t want to let her down. But Sinead thinks with a bit of training I should be okay. Now I know you will all have your chosen charity that you are running for and we have decided to run for the wonderful Irish Cancer Society. And EVB will donate 10% of all their profits in the week before and the week after the WMM to the charity. So there’s never been a better time to get yourselves a pair. Happy Running all! Xx Sinead’
We will be chatting to Sinead Kane and Ursula Walshe after the event to find out how they enjoyed it. Good luck to everyone running and we look forward to seeing you on the day #protectyourcore.
