100km on foot - Good luck to Heather on her race to the stones tomorrow!

I'm feeling a little nervous this afternoon, as tomorrow morning (15th July) I'll be on the start line of a 100K race (62 miles of running!). I start at 7.30am and my aim is to finish before the sun goes down.

I'm raising money for a fantastic local charity called Momentum. They do an amazing job of helping change the lives of children with cancer and life-limiting conditions in our local community.

If you'd like to find out more about my challenge and Momentum, pop over to my virgin money giving page (it would be lovely if you could donate some money while you're there too!).

Please also keep your fingers crossed for a lovely cool day on Saturday!
