Name: Georgina Crisp
What made you want to enter MAD2Run?
I heard about MAD2Run from friends at work and was inspired by what they were doing. I love challenges, and having the opportunity to take on a challenge which will not only have an impact on my life, but on the lives of so many others.
What are you most excited about for this journey?
I’m most excited to watch the growth of everyone in the team over the next 9 months as well as to be a part of the journey of some of the children in the MAD leadership foundation, their stories are what drives me.
How will you bring Gees to the team?
I’m a keen adventurer, so I think I have lots of stories to share and am known for some spontaneous random moments, so I’ll be bringing Gees to the team through my random, mostly stupid ideas whilst we’re on our adventure.
What are you most nervous about?
At this stage the nerves haven’t kicked in, but I think I’m most nervous about not meeting the goals I set for myself in terms of both running and fundraising.
How is your training going and what are you doing to train for this MAD adventure?
My training is just getting started, I am lucky that I am quite fit and have taken part in various endurance events this year. Training wise at the moment I am making sure that I aim for 2 10km + runs a week on top of my usual gymming and hockey training. Once my hockey season is over I will look to run 5 times a week.
Do you have any fitness tips and trick you would like to share with our Readers?
I’m the worst at getting going in the mornings- I guess my one tip would be that if you struggle to get going, find a training buddy, that way you won’t be able to fade on training plans and once you get going you’ll be cross with yourself for not wanting to get up early in the first place.
If you were a superhero, what would your super power and name be?
My super hero name would just be G, short and sweet. I would love for my superpower to be teleportation- I love travel and I also often have to be at too many places at the same time, I think this is the superpower most suited to me.
Best of Luck Georgina!
