A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that’s sponsored us to date. We’ve hit the £1000 mark!
Last week I held a cake sale in Oxfam House. 13 of my wonderful colleagues baked cakes, brownies, muffins and even pinwheels (?!) for the cake sale. At 12pm we set up and by 2pm all of the cakes had been sold. We made a tidy £200 and all our customers were very satisfied.
Right now I’m planning the next fundraiser which is a handbag sale at work. I’ve had about 50 leather handbags donated and hope to sell them for between £20 and £35 next week. We hope to raise about £1000 in one go! Will keep you posted.
The training itself is currently on hold as I’ve been told not to run for 2 weeks because of some chest pains I’ve been having. I was in hospital last weekend. The doctors can’t see a correlation between my illness and my running but they’re looking into my results further. It’s unlikely that running is making it any worse. Frustratingly they don’t know what it is. They hope to give me an answer on whether I’ll actually be able to take part in the marathon on 12th March. Until then, I have to limit my running and exercise in general which is extremely frustrating. I’m also going to have to go on drugs to limit the worsening of my heart. All in all pretty rubbish.
So, the training plan’s taken a blow but to keep me distracted I’m focusing on the fundraising. It’s made me wonder why I run marathons anyway – I enjoy the fundraising bit the best!
Help us get closer to our £5000 target and sponsor us here.
