Say what?! Yep, I'm running my first half marathon!

Not just any old half marathon. The Great North Run is apparently one of the most stunning half marathon routes in the UK, and I can't wait…though I'm pretty chuffed I've still got until 13th September to finish my training...!

I'm running in aid of Cord - running for peace!

Cord is a peacebuilding organisation that works with local organisations, communities, governments, and the most marginalised in Burundi and Chad in Africa, and in Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos in Asia, to help address the root causes of tensions and conflict in society - poverty, unemployment, marginalization, and, very often, a lack of access to basic resources like land and water.

With peace, stability and inclusivity in society, people can achieve great things.

So please donate today, in support of Cord, as I train to run those long 13.1 miles, and help contribute to peace.

Many thanks in advance for your support!
