Do I seem to be getting adventurous now I’ve stepped up to doing Marathons? ;) I have now registered for this run which takes place on Sunday October 21st in my favourite city of Amsterdam. This is a special race as I will be celebrating 10 years of running and thus 10 years of raising funds for Starfish. It is also 10 yrs since Mr Hauer did a spate of conventions to raise funds for Starfish and meet his fans. He is at it again this year in Charlotte, USA at the end of March and I will be there. I cannot wait! I will be so excited see people again and meeting new people. This is the event I'm talking about and you can see the Starfish banner smack in the middle there
Anyway I am well into my training now. I’m currently using my usual running shoes but at the half way stage I will switch to my new ‘Five Fingers’. They may look strange but they simulate barefoot running. Currently in the mornings I find myself running in subzero temps!
