Plus, I entered this 30th edition race at 30 years old so I thought this would be an apt event to participate in. Santa Monica is also one of my favourite destinations and so I don't mind finishing the run there.
I'm now at the latter stages of my training which will have to be enough to prepare me for this gruelling task that lies ahead. So far my longest training session has been 17 miles in Lanzarote where the 21 degrees weather provided a nice respite from the cold UK winter.
If you can spare a few pounds to support SENSE and help me reach my fundraising target, I would appreciate that very much. Please have a look at the work they do at http://www.sense.org.uk/What can your donation do for Sense?Below is a small sample of activities that your donation can pay for:
£5 – could buy a set of musical bells to help stimulate even the tiniest amount of a deafblind child's hearing in music therapy.£7.50 – could pay for a deafblind child to experience sailing and feel the wind on their face on their Sense holiday.
£15 – could pay for a tactile book for use at a Sense family centre to develop a child's sense of sight and touch.£25 – could buy an interactive light tube to help stimulate a deafblind child's remaining sight.
£50 – could help pay for a deafblind child's vital first assessment.£250 – could kit out a home with sensory 'trails' enabling the deafblind residents to identify specific rooms, stairs etc, enabling them to live in a safe, secure environment.
