THE STORY:

  The Safaricom Marathon in Kenya allows participants from all over the globe to compete in an internationally acclaimed event whilst running through some of Africa’s most breath-taking scenery. Since its inception the event has raised over $4.2 million for projects across Kenya. Tusk and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy use wildlife conservation as a catalyst to alleviate poverty, reduce conflict, and improve education and livelihoods in rural areas .

     I've read that its a “must do” marathon, a tough marathon! With hills! Which will be hot by the time I finish ha! , so why did I choose this to be my first marathon..other than pain!  sense of accomplishment ....and Suzi got on board because we are helping the elephants and rhinos ...so now it gets serious...

       Some of Africa’s most iconic species, including elephants and rhinos, are at risk of vanishing from the wild in our lifetime. By donating you’re helping to raise vital funds for Tusk , supporting conservation, community development and education programs. Together we can make a difference. These animals are precious .

   My training started mid December, ever so slowly!  Having an iron disorder there was enough motivation to change my lifestyle for the run, but events in February  have now shown even more reason to enjoy life and appreciate what we have , to go that "extra step" .. The goal now is lofty, but as long as my latest set of helpers still approve, Im looking forward to climbing back up my Mt Everest ..and with a hiccup along the way I hope to be back on track soon....literally...

     Its  now March and I'm back running and hoping to get back on track for a half if not the whole thing

JUNE has arrived and I have threes weeks left!!! After clocking my longest distance yet 20 miles, its time to taper down the longer distances and give these legs some rest.. A half marathon is on the cards , but on the day who knows!! ..i Know the heat on the day, the terrain and altitude all make a difference but if i feel good  the goal is still 26miles!  

I'm looking for any donations, ANY SIZE , to help the cause ...thank you....
