    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    For someone who used to think that the words 'fun' and 'run' should never belong in the same sentence, I find that I've signed up for a 10K run on Sunday October 15th!

    The run takes place at the National Botanic Gardens, Carmarthen, Wales, which will raise money for the Royal Welsh Show.

    I also want to use this event to raise money to share between three of my favourite charities: Cancer Research, PLAN International and CPRW (Montgomeryshire Branch), and with your support I hope to be able to give at least £200 to these charities.

    Not having run much since school days (30+ years ago), it normally takes 10-12 weeks to prepare for going from couch to 10K, but having only started proper training last week, I've got the grand total of 6 weeks to get ready!

    Your donations would be greatly appreciated to support some of the charities which mean a lot to me:

    Cancer Research: researching 200+ cancers, without government funding.

    PLAN International: a children's charity which strives to advance children’s rights, equality and living conditions all over the world.

    CPRW Montgomeryshire: the CPRW (Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales) champions the responsible use of Welsh landscapes.

    Please support me by clicking on this link and pledging your support. Thank you.

      WEEK 5 - 07/1017 I've completed two more training runs this week - 5K on Tuesday and today my last training run of 6K. Next week I'll be taking a rest from actual running, although I'll be doing some light rowing and core-conditioning. Looking at a map of the route it will all be on country roads and paths within the Gardens. I've been running around a rough ol' field (the sheep were waiting for me to finish today), so I'm hoping this will have provided enough of a workout to see me run 10K with comparative ease!! Time will tell.

      WEEK 4 - 26/09/2017 Another Tuesday which meant another practice run. Another 5k, but a little more challenging this week - the field I normally run around now has sheep in it, so it was time for Plan B - running around two other fields - five times around both plus a bit more. All very well, but both fields have 150m descents. Add to that the ankle length wet grass, molehills, nettles and thistles (not always avoided successfully...) and it all made for a tough run - most of it in pitch blackness, before sunrise. Is that daft or dedication?!
