In a moment of madness, I have decided to run my first half marathon this June. Oh, but I couldn't choose any normal location, no, I chose Uganda!!

So, I thought by participating in my first 10k last Autumn, I could take on a half marathon in my stride. Having given my trainers an extended break over the winter.....they still look like they did in the shop window......I'm giving up all my vices (well most of them) and beginning a gruelling 4 months of training. This is going to be both mental and physical torture but I am so determined to come out on the other side and raise money for an extremely worthy cause.
The run is mainly off-road along off hard baked red African dirt roads across hilly terrains reaching an altitude of 1150m!
