Completing the Big Fun run for charity

I went out last night, so today I was not feeling too good, but I was still determined to do the  Big Fun Run  to raise  funds for the single parent charity  Gingerbread who have been so supportive to me and my children over the last 15 years.  This is my little way of saying thank you.

Raising funds for Gingerbread

The event was in Victoria Park in London, and I was fortunate to get free parking space next to the park. I was a bit late and missed the warm up session, but I did my own quick stretch.

Funniest moment – Half way through I wanted to use the toilet and had to wait  for what seemed liked hours before I saw that much to my relief.

New Friend – I met a lovely lady Lana and her daughter. She was struggling a bit as she had a huge backpack and her daughter was getting tired. I decided to encourage them so we walked and jogged and made it to the finish line in style. It was great fun to see the smile on her daughters face.


Fundraising Target – my target is to raise £150 and I am nearly their, so do please donate what you can towards this great cause. Thank you – please follow this link

I love waking up and going out for an early morning run,and doing the Big Fun Run will help me to raise funds and meet other people. So in the last few months I have been  preparing combining walking, jogging and running outdoors. I am hoping to raise £200 and I am nearly halfway their and very grateful for the support.
