All for a good cause….


On June 1st I will be running 8.5 miles for Jude’s friend Alfie’s charity Friends of Alfie Johnson who help children with disabilities. Alfie and Jude go to school together and it was the idea of doing something for charity rather than giving to someone else who was doing it that drove me to lose weight and get fit. 3 stone lighter and now running 10 miles regularly and I am counting down to the Great Midlands Fun Run next month.

Unfortunately there are no on-line donations for this but please pledge a donation to me by email ( and if I have any energy left I will track you down after the event. 🙂

Buoyed by my efforts in recent months I have also signed up to do the BUPA Birmingham Half Marathon in October, this time running for Acorns Children’s Hospice who provide Jude and our family with so much support so apologies in advance as I will be asking again later in the year.
