About

Dog Aid is a small charity training assistance dogs  for people with disabilities and I have personal experience of the fantastic work the dedicated  staff and volunteers do through my Mum whose assistance dog  Lucas gives her the independence  taken away from her after a car accident  has resulted in her being wheel chair bound. The positive effect on their  lives is immeasurable and also on the carers, families and friends .  

Please look a the website to be amazed by these incredible dogs and read the inspirational stories  this has on the lives of those receiving assistance dogs which take around 18 months to train and qualify.  

As a small charity fundraising is  critical so please support me in my small effort to help make a difference.   

Event details

Cardiff Half Marathon

Cardiff Half Marathon starts at Cardiff Castle around the whole city, where my personal goal is to get back to previous levels in running half marathons many many years ago  towards breaking 1 hour 35 minutes  ( well 1hr 38m more realistic but hey my pain is nothing in perspective ) 

training :
w.e 12 th August - 25 miles complete
w.e 19th August - 22 miles complete
w.e 26th August - 23 miles 
w.e 2nd sept - 18 miles 
w.e 9th sept - 30 miles 
w.e. 16 th sept - 23 miles 
w.e. 23rd sept - 31 miles 

The  support from all my training pals  in Hermitage Joggers & Newbury Runners is even more important over the next month.
