York 10K Fundraising Heroes - Dan

Why did you decide to raise funds for Accessible Arts & Media?

My much better half, Hannah, works at AAM.  So I’m well aware of the need for funding to help them keep up their excellent work in the community.

If you had to sum up Accessible Arts & Media in three words, what words would you choose?

Invaluable, Caring, Fun.

How would you describe the difference Accessible Arts & Media makes?

AAM bring a lot of happiness to people. They greatly improve people’s enjoyment of life.

How's your training going?

Training’s going ok, but need to step it up a bit to hit my 45 min target.

Do you have any top training tips for others looking to run a 10K?

Best tactic I’ve found is to do 2 mile runs regularly, really push to the limit so you’re exhausted. Then running a 10k (at a slower pace of course) feels much easier.

We love music here at AAM - what's the track guaranteed to get you going when you're out training?

I have a lot of rock stuff on my running playlist. Lots of AC/DC. Livewire by AC/DC is a good one to start with. Starts quiet & steady, then kicks in!!
