Dancing for the Kids!

In my madness I have agreed to a week of Zumba classes. This seems more daunting than my run! I have never even tried it before. Actually to the point I think I may have been avoiding it!

So what do they say face your fears? Grab the bull by the horns? Whatever, my name is down and I am coming in! Thanks to Martin at GTI Fitness this will be my schedule for the week commencing 5th December...

Monday 2000 - Chapel Leisure Centre

Tuesday 2000 -  Disley Methodist Church
Wednesday 930 - New Mills Youth Centre
Thursday 2000 Buxton - St Thomas More School

Saturday...... 1730-2100 Xmas Zumba Party @ Entourage Printworks Manchester

Oh and just to say I have every intention of keeping up my running training that week too!  So come on sponsor me or better still come and join me! The party looks like great fun and would be great to celebrate at the end with a few of my supporters. So get your dancing shoes on and say it's for the kids!

I've got lots of things in the pipeline to tell you about in the future but in the meantime I thought I'd tell you about some support I will be getting during my run. Richard Thomas owner of Colemore Farm has volunteered to come and run a full day with me! How wonderful is that!!! I'm really looking forward to it as, by the second week, it may be just what my motivation needs. Thank you, it means a lot to me.

And if anyone else fancies pulling on their trainers over Easter and happens to be up my way I'll be posting the route soon so you can come and join me too. Even if you only wave as I go by it will make me smile and I can tell you that's almost as good as an energy drink!

My local veg shop today also offered sponsorship and a big basket of fruit to keep me going! how great are they. There's a lot to be said for community spirit and shopping locally. So if you live near Whaley Bridge pop into Country Basket and pick up some excellent, seasonal veg.

Thank you to all again that have sponsored me so far. I hope you are following my Facebook Page too now
