Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I had an operation to my foot which meant that I was unable to walk properly and pain-free for over a year. After my recovery I decided I wanted to run. This was just over 2 years ago. At first it was just short distances and then I built it up. From there I entered a couple of races and competitions, just to keep my interest going. I have now run 2 half marathons and for some reason I have decided to join my husband and daughter in running the Paris Marathon. This is going to be the toughest challenge I have ever done and I have been training for it since the start of the year.
I want to run my marathon (most likely the only one I ever do because it hurts... a lot) for a good cause. Border Terrier Welfare is a charity very close to my heart. I know the volunteers work tirelessly to help Borders that have fallen on hard times, usually through no fault of their own. Circumstances occur and dogs need to find a new 'forever home', Border Terrier Welfare do their utmost to do this as quickly as possible trying to match suitable dogs to suitable people.
I fell in love with Border Terriers over 30 years ago and they have given me so much pleasure that I now want to give something to less fortunate dogs - a better chance at a better life.
I hope that you can support me to take on this tough challenge and help some lovely Border Terriers along the way.
