Hello everybody! I am Leo. I am 2! I like red socks, story books, my hedgehog called Edgy and cheese. I really like cheese. I also like running! On Thursday 30th April I am going to run 800m with my mummy. I've even got some new running shoes. They are green and blue and they make me run really really fast.
Mummy is doing LOADS of running. It's made her a bit funny. Sometimes we run together and I go in the buggy, and mummy huffs and puffs like the big bad wolf and I think it is a good thing my buggy isn't made of straw or she would blow it down. Mummy does funny exercises at home which distract me from cbeebies, but it's ok because I can climb on her when she's lying on the floor. Sometimes she puts on her woolly hat and scarf when she's not even going outside - then she gets in a really really cold bath! Mummies can be funny. She even has been drinking beetroot juice. Yuckarooney! She says it makes her weewees go purple.
You can read all about what my mummy is training for here: www.tararuns8in8.wix.com/8in8. She is going to run 8 marathons in 8 days so that children like me can have books and learn to read. It makes me sad that some children don't have books like the gruffalo and how to hide a lion.
I am joining in with 800m of marathon number 5. I hope that she won't be too grumpy by then.
