Taken up Running

I have been strangely quiet over the past few weeks. I have simply been it of breath. 

I have been trying a different diet and thought that it might be good to get slightly fitter as well. I started running and it was agony to begin with but over the past seven weeks I have gradually improved. 

I have been using The Couch to 5K programme that can be found on the NHS Choices website. I can say that it really works:

Last night I entered a 5K race and completed it in under 40 minutes.

I helped to raise the profile of the Throat Cancer Foundation

I didn't seek any sponsorship this time as I wanted to know that I could complete the programme but have agreed to send £50 to TCF.

The race was organised by and the results will be on their website.

So, what has this to do with Making a Difference apart from being healthier, fitter and thinner?
