I have encouragement and help from my own 20 week old puppy Bing who ensures I wear the correct footwear.......
Who walks with me......notice the word "walk" rather than "run". I have been known to break into a jog on occasions!
I am proud to be team leader......my badge arrived last week. A venture like this is best tackled as part of a team...my team is Loftus Slimming World...my pals from the slimming group we attend each week.
One of our members Deb, is running in memory of her mum. You can read the story here
K is also for Keith
This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago in hospital where Keith started his first chemotherapy treatment for the cancer which has come back. Keith is a very dear, lovely man who we have known for many years. He recovered from Cancer of the Bowel a few years ago and we believe he will do it again. The agony of me running 5km will be over in a couple of hours, but the side affects of the drugs which Keith has to take last for days....I can not complain but I do so want to make a contribution to this research. One day the small efforts by people like us will pay off and the research we fund will be the hope of tomorrow.
I am reaching out to my friends across the globe to make a small contribution wherever possible and support our venture.
Due to the amazing internet donations can be made on-line here
Thankyou for your kindship and kindness.
