Welcome to the maddest challenge yet! 2 days, 2 marathons, across baked rocky trails, through red clay Berber villages, and palmeries, down to the sandy dunes of the mighty Sahara! Training has begun in earnest, though it is currently a little chilly!

Over the next fews months I will be keeping you all up to date with my running antics. Why Naomi House -whilst I worked at Ryeish Green many of the children attended Naomi House- a lifeline to many. Sadly a few benefitted from the Butterfly suite. This week I remember fondly a very special boy called Max who died on December4th 2007, aged 2. 

First challenge of the year completed- the London Winter Walk- a marathon walk around London. We had a chilly but dry day, and the east loop took us round all the sights of London

10th March -A tough marathon completed, my last long training run before my next major challenge- the Easter 50km
