After not running at all since the move to New York, I have signed up to run the New York City Half Marathon in March with the Wildlife Australia Fund.
I have signed up for two reasons:
1. This will be a real challenge for me, the Half Marathon is extremely soon and I haven't run any sort of distance for ages. The training will be crazy, but I want to see if I can do it.
2. Australia's natural wildlife is in trouble; there are over 1000 species that are so few in numbers, that the world may loose them completely. Two of the key reasons these species are in so much trouble are because of feral animals, and feral plants. I believe that because people brought these to Australia, people need to now protect our wildlife from them. The Wildlife Australia Fund buys land, and then manages it so the Aussie wildlife within it can be protected from these threats. This makes sense to me, and I would like to help this charity by raising some money if I can.
I hope that you might think these are good reasons for signing up to run this race, and will considering showing me by making a donation on this page.
Thank you so much,
