Portraits of Cheltenham: The Newbie Runner

_DSC0443nat_300714edit

My crazy younger sister has only gone and signed herself up to the Cheltenham half marathon, which takes place on Sunday the 7th September. She’s not usually one for exercise, unless you call walking around a shopping mall for nine hours exercise. Yes, she made me do this. Her determination and training to do well however, has been admirable.

She has been out running most evenings, improving on her speed and distance. Putting us all to shame when we sniggered at the idea of Nat running for any amount of time let alone 13 miles.

As most people, Nat is running for a cause. To raise money for the charity Motor Neurone Disease Association. We recently had a family friend diagnosed with the disease and cannot believe the speed at which it attacks the body. Anyone can get MND and most often effects healthy people. There is still no cure as there is not enough funding.

If you would like to donate to the charity Motor Neurone Disease Association my sister has set up a JustGiving page here.

Thank you.
