Where has November gone?

Well, it’s been a while. I can’t believe it is a whole month since my last post.

What have I been doing? November’s kind of past me by….

I’ve been to Turkey (and did a little run)

Do we detect a theme developing here

 

Done quite a bit of running (but not quite enough).

The weather here in the UK has been atrocious.  We’ve had record levels of rain so I have done many soaking wet runs which have also involved wading through calf deep freezing puddles.  How dedicated am I?

Yes, it even snowed in November

Whenever I feel sorry for myself, or question what on earth I am doing running in the freezing cold and pouring rain, I have to remind myself that I am lucky because I can do this.  And I think of my darling friend Winky who has been going through the hell of chemotherapy who is my inspiration to do this to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.  I have been further spurred on by the generous donations to my Virgin giving page so far. Thank you everyone. You make those early morning, cold runs slightly more easy to bear.
