Acrostic - Marathon Madness
Marathon Madness – yes, I must be mad!
April 22nd – that’s the big day.
Run Carole, run – I know how Forest Gump feels!
Always on my mind; this marathon, it feels, has taken over my life.
Training – day and night, night and day, it never ends.
Howling winds, the dark, the rain, even the snow – I’m training in all weather conditions.
Obviously I’m finding this hard, horrible in fact!
New trainers – there goes another pair!
Miles... oh my gosh, 26.2 of them!
Adrenaline – this pushes you through but it’s so important to pace yourself properly.
Needing and deserving children in Ghana will benefit gratefully from your hugely kind donation.
Easy? No, it’s hard. It’s horrible. Yet I am sure it will all be worth it!
So close, at 26 miles I’ll be running past Buckingham Palace and down The Mall towards the finishing line!
Swift half... I think I’ll deserve a swift half (or a bottle after this!)
Anyway, I’m doing it, and hoping that all this pain and suffering will not be in vain. I’m trying to raise £2,000 to support Kicking Off, a charity of which many of you know, I’m a proud Trustee. Having just returned from Ghana I have seen, firsthand, how much impact we’re having on some of the poorest communities in the world. Every penny I raise will go to fund the charity’s next project – in fact, £2,000 will be enough fund a whole football tournament, helping hundreds and hundreds of deprived children and young adults; bringing medication, education and most importantly hope and joy.
