  5. 5. 05 HOSPICEFUNDRAISINGPACK TEAM HOSPICE TOP FUNDRAISER 2012 Every year we award our best TEAM HOSPICE fundraiser with a gift from one of our sponsors. This added incentive has driven a number of fundraisers to raise fantastic amounts for the charity. Last year, our top fundraiser was Andrew Le Poidevin. He managed to raise an incredible 2500 £ by involving his friends, family, colleagues and promoting the cause HOSPICE."It is a remarkable experience, finishing a marathon. Elation, exhaustion, pride and satisfaction. The supporters, friends and complete strangers applauding you along, shouting encouragement. That would be enough, but add in the aspect of fundraising for HOSPICE Casa Speranței and a whole new dimension opens up. When I was running I was acutely aware that every step not only took me closer to the finish line but also closer to someone, somewhere getting assistance. 10 kms sign – thatʼs medication for someone; 20 kms – practical home help; 30 kms – bricks for the new hospice being built; 40 kms – an inflatable mattress; finally 42.1 kms. As I came down the long finish in front of the worldʼs second largest building I saw everyone encouraging me. But I also saw all the people who had sponsored me so generously. And I saw the people who were being helped by their money. Most of all I knew that my partnerʼs mother, in her hospital bed, was thinking of me, knowing of the money I was raising and the help it would provide to so many other people. I cried as I approached the finish line. There is no doubt that it was worth it, all the training, sensible eating, blisters and aching muscles. I loved the sense of achievement for me, the charity and those sponsoring me. You will too." Andrewʼs story is just one of hundreds of inspirational stories we have received from Team HOSPICE runners. We encourage you to discover the joy of running yourself by becoming part of the “Team HOSPICE” family which grows every year.

  7. 7. 07 HOSPICEFUNDRAISINGPACK TRAINING TIPS Whether this is your first attempt at running a vertical run or you are already expert, it is important that you train well so you can make the most of your experience. • Set realistic goals for yourself. • Plan the training to match your own goals but remember that things may come up at the last minute – so donʼt be too hard on yourself! • Warm up and cool down routines are essential elements of every training session. • Each week consider three sessions at target race pace, two long slow sessions and two days recovery. • Remember to breath deeply, not shallow breathing. • Learn to run relaxed and smooth with your pace controlled by your breathing rhythm. • Monitor your weight and fluid intake - weight loss may be due to fluid loss. • Make sure you are using appropriate footwear. A good running shop can advise you. See our training tips on the right to get you through the next few weeks... • Keep a daily log - record details of training (mileage, time, how you felt, weather conditions etc), sleep, diet, weight, morning resting pulse rate etc. • Have a good balanced diet. • For your training sessions consider running for a set time rather than a set distance. It reduces boredom of the same route/scenery and the problems of measuring distances.
