Right. It's settled. It's to be Waterbeach, 20th October. Gulp.
Why such a popular and well known venue for a comeback?
Well, it's complicated, but just about the time I ended up on sticks, a pal of mine's ten year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumour. She's had a ding-dong couple of years, so when I learned to run again, I promised Elizabeth (the ten year old) that she could have my first race for the charity of her choice, to say thank-you to whatever group she felt had helped most in a pretty sticky two years.
It's going to be CLIC.
But it has to be a very local run. We'll rope in anyone we can catch to run along with, and beg quite shamelessly, and make a fun day of it, even if it takes a very long time to get round. We will finish up at the sailing club afterwards (just down the road) for lunch.
Now lets just hope I can do it on the day! At least I know just exactly what I am aiming for.
I'm ridiculously excited. marj
