Next up: Sunday, 31st August, the Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10k - where I'll be running as Austin Powers. Groovy Baby :D
Completed - Saturday, August 16th, I made a fancy-dressed appearance as Mickey Mouse at the 3rd anniversary event of my beloved Durham parkrun. Great fun was had by all :)
If you'd like to be kept up-to-date please follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
Having turned 40 in 2009 I realised that I wasn't getting any younger and needed to get into shape.
I embarked on a get-fit campaign.
I began entering into 'fun' runs to give myself goals.
I then extended the 'fun' runs to include half-marathons ... and usually in fancy dress!
Now I run even more events, every year, including full marathons! (and yes, still in fancy dress).
Please sponsor me to help lift my morale (and tired legs) in aid of this very worthwhile cause, to help continue their quest to find a cure for heart disease and to also help and support those affected by it.
Both they, and I, will be very appreciative of any donation that you can give.
