Great north run

The day is quickly approaching when I tackle the Great North run for the ninth time. You would think that I’d have known better by now!  The run takes place on Sunday 13th – it’s a half marathon – and although I’ve been training for a few months, I wouldn’t say that I’ve done enough, so it should be interesting(!) to see how I fare on the day. I was hoping to raise some money for Macmillan Cancer care, but unfortunately I was late setting up my Just Giving page for online donations, so I don’t think that’ll do too well (so far only £5 donated). It’s my fault – I should have been more organised about that much earlier. My son will also be competing in the run, so it’s going to be a family outing. My husband is the logistics manager – he drops us near the start then waits at the end with jumpers and chocolate bars, and drives us home. It’ll be a real family outing because my daughter-in-law and 1-year old grandson will also be there. The run finishes at the seaside, and I’m hoping for a dry but overcast day – dry so that the family can go down to the beach while they wait for me to finish – overcast so it’s not too hot to run. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well.  (Joan)
