News from my side...
I decided to tick one of my bucket list items before I turn 50 - running (and finishing) the Comrades marathon. I never really thought it possible. It seems at age 49 I will be doing it! Can you believe?!
Training and getting ready for this has been an incredible journey - pain and smiles included.
I read a saying: 'Physical strength will get you to the start line. Mental strength will get you to the finish line.' I will be needing the mental strength! I also believe that if you do anything for a reason bigger than yourself, it gives it meaning and strength. So i will be running in support of the incredible work done (by Goldilocks and the Bear) for ADHD. Its a topic close to my heart and the work that they do really change lives.
My request to you: Help me! Send me some mental / emotional strength and at the same time support the brilliant ADHD cause, by donating any amount that you feel comfortable with into the ADHD account. Every 86,73km will be worth it! My target is to make at least R1000 on that day.
I thank you with all my heart!
