Laura's Challenge: Pretty Muddy
I am the designer for Gossard, a sister brand of Berlei, and I'm hear to talk about my Pretty Muddy challenge! When I was first asked to take part in this tough mudder race for life, it came at the perfect moment as Gossard had just joined forces with the charity Coppafeel (which aims to raise breast cancer awareness amongst the younger generation). How could I not get behind another brilliant charity such as Cancer Research, that also aims to fight the battle against cancer?

Motivation for training has not been too hard, as I am also trying to get in shape for my fast approaching wedding & honeymoon. So currently I am aiming to get to the gym 2 times a week for strength/weight training and 2 to 3 times a week for cardio training. Evenings have proven tricky sometimes with work commitments, so some days I find myself being forced to do a morning workout instead, crazy but also energising (most of the time).

With only 2 months to go until the race I can genuinely say I am so excited to be taking part in such a fun and meaningful race, for such an important charity. Today pretty much everyone (somehow) has been affected by cancer, as have I, so I will be running, crawling, climbing for my brilliant Nana Elsie who died of pancreatic cancer in 2008. She was my ultimate style icon.
Daniella's Challenge: Pretty Muddy
The countdown continues to the Cancer Research, Pretty Muddy event..somehow I agreed to run the 5K this year. I can't decide whether I'm a good team player, or stupid, or both. They must have caught me on a good day! In all seriousness, it's a great cause and I hope to raise lots of funds for Cancer Research.

Knowing that I'm terrible when it comes to fitness, it's a great opportunity for me to start some training and put our Berlei sports bras to the test.
Fortunately for me, my local gym has offered me deal on a 6 weeks membership pass, so I'll get to test out the Berlei bra much sooner than I thought...which is lucky as there's less than 6 weeks left until I'll be running the full 5K!

My plan is to do plenty of jogging on the runnng machine to break me in gently, then attempt at running 5k! I'll let you know how I get on... wish me luck.
Let us know if you're taking part in a charity event this year on Facebook or Twitter and think about us on Saturday 13th September, go 'The Breast of British'!
