Obi Wan Kenobi Meets the King…

After reading Seb and Peter Coe’s book, Obi Wan decided that it would be prudent to seek further advice before embarking on any ‘actual’ running. So, he managed to track down ‘The King’, the greatest long distance runner in history ~ Haile Gebrselassie. As you can see from the photo, Obi Wan was pleased to hold council with the great man and Haile was more than happy to write down some good advice in Obi Wan’s book. Obi Wan learnt a great deal from his meeting with Haile but decided to seek advice from another source…but can you guess who? All will be revealed soon 🙂

Obi Wan Studies the Ways of the Coe…

With just over a week until the Jedi Joggers take on the challenge of the Run For All Hull 10k, Obi Wan has decided to start his training. This evening he decided that it was best to study the ways of the Coe (Peter and Seb to be precise) as The Force is strong with them! As it turned out, this WAS the book that he was looking for 😉

Honey, I Shrunk the Jedi Joggers…

Another day, another blog post 🙂 Today, I want to tell you about a very special event that’s taking place this Sunday the 8th of May 2011 in Leeds.

The Jane Tomlinson Arena Group Junior and Mini Run will take place in Leeds 🙂

‘In conjunction with the Leeds Half Marathon, the two run courses will start and finish next to Millennium Square on Cookridge Street and head down onto the Headrow towards Westgate. All of the route will be fully marshalled and First Aid provision will be available at the start/finish and along the route.’

‘The Junior Run is a 2.5km city centre course open to children aged 9-14, whilst the Mini Fun Run is a separate, non-competitive, 1.5km run open to 3-8 year olds who must be accompanied by an adult.’

I am very proud to announce that the Jedi Joggers will be represented in the Mini Fun Run by our very own Junior Jedi Joggers. There will be 6 little Padawans of varying abilities (accompanied by senior Jedi Joggers), taking part and helping to support this fantastic charity, so look out for the very stylish black and yellow running tops 🙂

The Junior Jedi Joggers are Ready!
