    Story

    When I started jogging 3 years ago, I never ever thought I would even reach the 15 mins run at the end of the 10 week JogScotland Course. But here I am, just about to undertake a half marathon, which will be totally the furthest I have ever, or will ever run. In the past I have raised funds for Alzheimer Scotland but this year I would like to do so for Moray Women's Aid. MWA offers services to women, children and young people with experience of domestic abuse. They provide refuge and community accommodation and support those in need with practical and emotional support throughout their time in refuge, for a period of follow-on and on an outreach basis. MWA has to fundraise to continue to provide this vital service, and I am glad I have the chance to support that effort. This service has literally saved women's lives. Please sponsor me, any amount will be gratefully received. Thank you all.

      I did it and with 37seconds to spare! I aimed for 2hrs40mins and did it in 2hrs39, 37 seconds! It was HARD, too hilly, too hot and too cobbly (Old Aberdeen). I was fine till the 8 mile mark when I was faced with a steep hill. I had to walk it which set the tone for the rest, walking and running. On reflection though, I enjoyed it, feel proud of my achievement and glad to have raised funds for MWA. Many, many thanks to all of you who sponsored me, it's what kept me going.

      To all you wonderful people who have sponsored me, known and unknown, THANK YOU so much. I've nearly reached my target and I know there will be some generous, kind hearted soul out there who will take pity on me and give me a couple of quid to get there. I can report with a huge sigh of relief that the long runs are done (no sniggering in the stalls!). I am truly happy to say the training has paid off and I do believe I will complete the course no matter what. Please support my fundraising for Moray Women's Aid, such a worthwhile cause.

      Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far, I truly appreciate it. The fact that I have been sponsored got me out the door this morning at quarter to 7, to start the longest training run we have to do ... 18km. To say I felt sick is an understatement but, it's done, my toes have uncurled, I've iced my calves and Achilles and can still walk. So happy to know it's ONLY another 3km to get to the distance. Please Aberdeen, don't put any hills in near the end 🏔Or I'll be 🚶‍♀️not 🏃‍♀️
