October next year (to give myself chance to train properly) i am doing

THE GREAT NORTH RUN

HALF MARATHON

:bliss::bliss::bliss::bliss::bliss:

WOOOHOOO!!! for me!!!

I am doing it for charity, for Birminghams Childrens Hospital:talk017:

My God daughter ..bless her...has been in the care of the childrens hospital now since January of this year when she was diagnosed with chronic pancreitus....(amongst alot of other things linked to the illness):cry:

She is only 2, and the youngest sufferer of pancreitus in the UK :(

The hospital is great, and although she will never get better, and proabably wont live a full life, i am not sad, because she isnt :happy036:

And hopefully she will be here to watch me cross the finish line :sign0168:

so here's to the hours of training :character00115: lol

I watched some of it on television for the first time this year.It looked like there was a great atmosphere there.
I like the idea of running outside I have tried it twice but I have really weird feet that start to hurt for no reason whatsoever so I have to give up:(
One is hurting at the moment and really doing my head in.
I am going to order a treadmill I think it might be easier on the feet.:D;)
