I'm running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 9th October, 2011 with Louise Bennett and we're raising money for Practical Action.

I am not a natural runner and this is my first race!  However, I like a challenge and training has begun!  I ache but am delighted with progress.  Please, please sponsor me to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon, your money goes to an inspirational charity and I really, really appreciate your support.

You can visit my blog here - - and follow every step of training and preparation for the race day.
