Fool on the run – show time

As  you sit and read this I will be out there *points at the countryside* attempting to run 100km along the beautiful Ridgeway as I take part in the Race to the Stones. As I write this the day before I have to say I’m a little nervous, despite my bravado saying that it’s not that far it really is. It’s also going to be hot, humid and there is a distinct possibility of a thunderstorm, perfect timing of course to be running along a ridge that is the high point for miles around.

But I’m doing it to raise money for 2 very good causes and I hope that will be enough motivation and inspiration to keep going through the tough times. When I looked just now my fundraising stood at £546 including gift aid and I’d like to say thank you to all of you who have donated, I truly appreciate it. If you’ve haven’t donated yet and would like to there is of course still time, you can find my fundraising page here. The work that Tommy’s and Save the Children do can make a real difference to children’s and parents lives and are causes that I hold very dear to my heart.

Whatever happens tomorrow I shall wear my Save the Children vest with pride and fingers crossed I shall still be smiling when I cross the finishing line in Avebury 100km later. I’ll most likely be sending the occasional tweet or Instagram photo of the race during the inevitable times I’m walking up hills or taking a breather. So do follow me in both places if you’re interested in seeing how I get on, you can find a link to my Twitter profile over there on the right. If you can spare a tweet of encouragement during the day that would also be most welcome.

Thank you,

Fool on the run
