Thanks to everyone for helping to reach the 30% fundraising target by the 22nd of January. Even though the running total is still slightly under, I got one verbal donation commitment on the day itself (which was my birthday by the way and the donation is my birthday pressie), but it’s not on there yet. Guess I have to chase my present up 😉 But the NSPCC knows and it’s all good.
Have to start looking ahead though and see how raise the last 70% (and maybe even more, who knows?). Frist measure: I just got this fancy new web address for my running blog. It’s very simple and easy-peasy to remember:
That’s it. Cool, huh? Might put it on a T-shirt to raise awareness for the cause 🙂
The training goes all well. After the rather rigid training plan that I was following for the Tiberias marathon in January, I do now what I call “feel good running”: just try to run with enjoyment, don’t über-focus on times and heart rates and try to run feeling good as long as possible. It works. I have done some nice trail runs since and even reactivated my Vibram FiveFingers. That is the footwear with the barefoot feeling. Nearly forgot how great it is to actually feel the ground under your feet. Fun times!
