bristol half marathon

leave a comment »

Don’t be alarmed I am not going to run the Bristol half marathon on . Never will that happen. I am built for comfort not speed. Mark on the other hand is honing a finely tuned running body and is going to attempt it. I am so impressed and really pleased for him. Since we arrived in Bristol Mark has been determined to get fit and this really is the proof.

The event takes place on Sunday 9 September 2007 so Mark is stepping up his training regime. He is going to run for a charity called Motivation , their website describes their work:
Motivation is an international disability and development charity working in low-income countries to enhance the quality of life of people with mobility disabilities. Our programmes aim to improve opportunities by positively impacting on disabled people’s physical, social and economic situation to enable their full participation in society.

Mobility is an essential human right that enables people to achieve inclusion in all aspects of life. Motivation works in partnership with a range of organisations – from grassroots disability groups to national governments and international actors – to ensure that local people and organisations have the skills to meet the needs of disabled people in their communities and to affect positive lasting change.

He needs sponsors and support so please do contact him if you can spare some money. Also, if you would like to run give him a shout because the charity still has places. I will be going to provide moral support and after run cakes so do let me know if you woud like to join me as a spectator.
