This blog has mostly been about my life travelling, ever since it was born as my way to record my time in Thailand almost three years ago. There will still be plenty of travel stories since I don’t plan to stop expanding my list of countries visited, but now I’ll also be telling you about another kind of travelling. More specifically, running.
I’ve been thinking for a little while about doing a charity run. For one thing, I’ve never been a good runner (trust me, this is no false modesty talking) so it’s a sort of personal challenge. I’ve also had a few loved ones suffer through cancer (and come out the other end) and it does make you think about how you can help.
So, after an afternoon watching the London Marathon yesterday with my friend Heather we agreed to start running for charity. We’re going to ease in with a 5k, although that will still be no small feat. Then perhaps a 10k, a half marathon, and if I survive, I hope one day to manage a full marathon. This blog will tell you whether or not I make it.
Of course I’ll be sharing my tales here (and all the information about sponsoring me, naturally…). If you want to join us on the road, even if just for the first 5k, get in touch. The more the merrier. See you on the road.
