10 weeks to go

It’s just 10 weeks until I run my first half marathon for 10 years.

Training for the 13.1 mile (21km) race has been something close to an obsession.  Making time for 5 runs a week, some of them up to 90 minutes, has been a challenge but I’ve managed them all most weeks.  Most days I enjoy the running.  Some days I’m acutely aware of the freedom I have to run.  I can run where I want.  I know that I have food to fuel my run and friends and family to support my efforts.  I know that there are millions of people around the world who don’t have that freedom.

I’ve raised over £300 for Christian Aid so far which is amazing.  Thank you so much if you have donated already.

To make giving even easier you can now donate by text.  Just text STEW72 to 70070 to donate £5.

Your donations will help people around the world… like the people of Bethlehem who live behind the separation wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territories…
