Spring in our step

So, although it is months away, I am already preparing for the Maidstone Fun Run (yes, I know it is not the Marathon!) in August.

Top Born Free supporter, Anneka Svenska (@AnnekaSvenska) and I will be blasting round the 5km course in double-quick time (or not!).  Of course, it is the perfect opportunity for you to join us and raise additional funds for Born Free and we can have a good old chat as we jog round! More information on how and where you can Fun Run for Born Free

Seriously, I have just returned from my fantastic sports physio, Helen King (www.firstclasstherapies.co.uk) and she is determined to sort out my bad back and make sure the run is enjoyable.  From here on, I will be building up on a weekly basis until I am as fit as the proverbial flea!

But I am not the only one who has got running on the brain.

Mark Jones, Born Free’s Programmes Manager Wildlife Policy,  and a stellar team of athletes, supporters and friends will be running the London Marathon on 26th  April and I know that they would love to have your support as they grind out the 26+ miles.  You can show them the love by going to http://www.bornfree.org.uk/get-involved/running/london-marathon/.

Hats off to Mark and the rest.  I have done the London Marathon and it is certainly not a challenge for the fainthearted!

So, as the sun comes out, our ‘plimsolls’ come on (yes I know, trainers) so why not join us and put your best foot forward for animals.
