Last year we completed our first and so far only Marathon. We choose to do the Rome marathon because we were pretty certain we wouldn’t bump into anyone who knew us as we were both a wee bit concerned about our ability to finish. And it was a good excuse to go to Rome again. We went with our friend Izzy a mega seasoned marathon runner who showed us the ropes.
After a good few minutes of thought we have made the decision to start running for a goal and have signed up for four races over the space of one month (ish). This involves three half marathons and one 15 mile trail race. In between Falda is also in a team for the Geneva relay marathon!!!
Now that we have entered them all it turns out running four big races in a few weeks is actually more daunting that just doing the one, perhaps we should have considered this over a few days rather than a few minutes. Anyway we are going to run for charity this time as well.
but basically we want to raise enough money to foot the cost of a house or two for those in need.
We have also encouraged Blaze Manufacturing Solutions, a fire and safety company based in Laurencekirk to be our main sponsor, which is amazing- you can check out the work they do here www.blazeman.co.uk
