A Special Day

This Sunday is a very special day.


This Sunday, the date will be the tenth day of the tenth month of the tenth year of the second millennium.

And I am completing a half marathon on this day. The McLaren Vale Half Marathon

I have been training for this for 5 months.

I am doing it for charity, for the Starlight Children's Foundation, for all the Captain Starlights out there, who have such a positive impact on the time kids spend in hospital.

My son, Charlie, who was hospitalised earlier this year for a long spell: his time in traction was literally transformed by Captain Starlight.

If anyone hasn't sponsored me, please, I would love it if you could..........I am aiming to raise $750 for the Starlight Children's Foundation. I have $100 to me reach my target? All you need to do is click here.

    Good luck on your half marathon. You'll do great.

  7. Good Luck, what an achievement. You should be really proud of yourself, no matter how it goes.

  8. Way to go Lucy!!! You are such an inspiration. I predict you will surpass your fundraising goal and kick @$$ at the half marathon, ye goddess! xx

  9. I did my first 1/2 marathon 7 years ago in an effort to lose weight. It was the hardest thing I've ever done but such a wonderful reward at the end when you know you've done it.

    Good luck, drink lots of fluids, and drink lots of fluids. Oh, and drink lots of fluids. :)
