Happy New Year!

Hello Dear Readers, if there is anyone there :) First of all I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I want to wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2015. For some people 2014 will have been a good year and for some sadly, it will have been a not so good one. I hope that 2015 is a good one for us all, may your dreams come ture and may you reach your goals. Lets all stay healthy and happy xxx
My new year always has one constant resolution, to get training and thus fit for a run to raise as many funds as possible for The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association which is always close to my heart. My last run of 2014 was on NYE and I really enjoyed it. I plan to go out for a good one tomorrow too which will be my first run of the new year.First Sunday run. I am thrilled to tell you all that I have indeed signed up to a run for Starfish, so from tomorrow I will officially be in training :) On Sunday 15th March I will be running the Silverstone Half Marathon. Yes I will be running around the F1 track and I am very excited about it! So I am of course now officially accepting sponsorship and any currency is welcome.
If you love Rutger Hauer and/or feel that you want to do something to help HIV+ children and HIV+ pregnant women, then every sponsor does make a difference. You are doing something great. Words of support and encouragement really do help me personally too. Here is a link to the wonderful updated webpage Rutger has for me on his official site. A huge thank you to him and his amazing webmasters!

On this page is a link to the Silverstone Half Marathon website. If anyone wants to sign up and do this run with me that would be truly awesome. There is also a link to my website and to that of my good friend and t-shirt designer Tori Ratcliffe. Very much looking forward to seeing what design she comes up with this year.
I have yet to update my website regarding this run but I have made a Facebook page. Please feel free to comment there or ask any questions you may have. I'll do my best to answer them.

If you have a few minutes to spare looking around the Starfish website, you will learn about all the amazing things this organisation has achieved over the years and what a great human being Rutger Hauer is outside of his acting career. Also increase your awareness of the global AIDS situation and others peoples if you chose to spread the word. Anyway, I hope you find it as inspiring as I do.

Love and hugs Sarah xxx

Some recent AIDS news

Please visit this link which will take you to the latest article about HIV news posted on The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association. I find it SO nice to have some positive news, and hope for a chance. Such a shame there isn't more but lets take what we can get. Enjoy and perhaps make a donation if you feel you can afford to right now. Be well and take care! Sarah xxx

Congratulations John.

About 5 posts ago, I mentioned that my dear friend John had undertaken an initiative to lose weight and get healthy whilst at the same time raising funds for the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association. I will let him tell you all about it.


He has continued to lose weight which is fantastic even though upon her return his wife didn't notice ;)

Congratulations John!

New summer running tops

I am now the proud owner of 2 new running tops. These are my first ever sleeveless tops and I am enjoying them whilst I can over the summer season. I think I will have to purchase more in the future.This is what they look like.


As I am not in training at the moment I am swimming twice a week, tuesdays and thursdays and jogging at the weekends. As I am currently off work for the summer term I have time to run during the week too :)




I have an update regarding my last post in which I stated that I had raised £400 for Starfish. Their currency is euros and so this is the currency I send the money to them in of course. For the first time ever I made a mistake in my calculations which I didn't know until I recived my bank statement. I sent them 681 euros thinking this equated to £400 when in fact it equates to £561. I had just been paid so I don't mind, everybody wins. I will be more careful in future when I use an online currency converter :D.
Happy running one and all! xxx
