Monsterpalooza Starfish Event

Hi all,

If you were there I'm sure you enjoyed it every bit as much as we did. If you weren't I'm sorry you missed it. It was a great and fun event and over the 3 days we managed to raise $15000. Here, is a link to Rutger Hauer's website where you can see the photo's of this event

You do still have time to sponsor my Chester Half Marathon this May

Hugs

Starfish fundraising event

Exciting news! On March 28th-30th Rutger Hauer will be one of the guests at a convention in Burbank LA. I am very lucky and proud to be attending as a member of the Starfish Team and I can't wait to see everyone again. such things make me feel like a big kid but to be honest it doesn't take much. if you like conventions or want to meet Rutger Hauer, please do come along and support his wonderful non-profit organisation. I would love it you popped in and said hello and perhaps even want to sponsor my half marathon. This event is called Monsterpalooza and here is the link to their official website

As you can see James Hong and Joe Turkel will be there too and I had the pleasure of meeting them 2 years ago at a convention in Charlotte. I also see that Joanna Cassidy will be there too so its a real Blade Runner fest! I hold on to the dream of one day meeting Ridley Scott. So if you are in the area,  I do hope you can make it. not long now until this event or my Chester Half Marathon…

Take care! xxx

Origin of AIDS

I was sent this 45 minute documentary in my Youtube email subscription. Its very interesting and quite an eye opener! I also have a new book to hunt down The River :) I would be most interested in any comments you have on this.

I feel we need an updated documentary on AIDS. I haven't seen any unless they are discovery channel etc which I don't have access to.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for reading.I Hope you all had a good and fun Christmas as I did! I Just want to wish you all a happy, healthy and productive 2014.May all our nightmares vanish and dreams come true. So what are your resolutions and/or plans for this year? I must confess I'm not very good at come up with resolution ideas. Thats not because I'm short of bad habits, I'm certainly not perfect. This may be my favourite time of year, but I'm not too good at planning ahead in the long term either. I mean, what am I going to do in the next 12 months? Part of me likes to take it as it comes and take advantage of any opportunities which come my way. Of course you all know that I will be doing a run this year for The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association. My absolute pleasure, anything to help. Now that we are into a new year, I will be stepping up my training, it will be non stop hard core running everyday. Most likely in the mornings before work, and more running means less swimming. Unfortunately there are some people in the world who didn't have a good christmas, and not much to plan ahead for this year, due to illness, or not being able to afford their healthcare. Primarily, I am thinking about the AIDS situation. Dear Starfish, have a webpage for me on their amazing official website. Here it is, http://www.rutgerhauer.org/rutgerhauer.org/sarahmarathons.php

It is easy to sponsor me, I take all currencies and if you want to help, every donation however small is greatly appreciated by me and Starfish. Thank you and do have a good 2014

P.S. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best to answer <3 br="">

Inspiration!

"Running isn’t a sport for pretty boys…It’s about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It’s about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It’s about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It’s about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there’s not a single soul in sight to cheer you on. Running is all about having the desire to train and persevere until every fiber in your legs, mind, and heart is turned to steel. And when you’ve finally forged hard enough, you will have become the best runner you can be. And that’s all that you can ask for." http://tcat.tc/1bfRGQT
