I’m not sure why I hate asking people to sponsor me so much. Maybe it’s because I don’t like asking people for favours or I don’t like imposing on people. Whatever it is I find running 40 to 50 miles a week easier than sending out a simple email.
However now I have sent out the email to friends and family asking for sponsorship I have found people’s response really positive. And it even motivates me more to train even harder knowing that I am doing it for a good cause and that other people want me to succeed.
I just wish I had asked for people’s money earlier.
