I am doing this half marathon for the second time.... it was the hardest thing I've ever done last year so I needed motivation to do it again!
The altitude, heat, many hills and off road route adds to the difficulty of this race. Plus the elite Kenyan athletes passing you doing the full marathon shows you how slow you are!
I am doing this for Team Kenya, the charity I worked for a few years ago, as I know that supporting a girls education is the best way to lift a whole community out of poverty and give them the equal opportunity they need. After this weekends amazing Women's March across the world I think we can all agree this is a cause close to all our hearts and many of you know how passionate I am about this. Empowering youth in the right way will solve many problems in the future.
Please donate your coffee money for today and help support a girl through secondary education with it. I will do all the hard work after that!
Thank you/ Asante Sana
