I am fundraising for The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

I have chosen Guide Dogs for my 2013-2020 charity. My Dad became partially sighted several years ago and had to retire early. After passing his assessment my Dad is now on the waiting list for a guide dog {Barnie joined the family in late 2015}.

This has given me a real appreciation of the all the hard work that this charity does and I wanted to do something to raise some much needed funds and also to raise awareness.
Due to ill health, injuries and family matters I have not been able to get back into a consistent training plan (until now - fingers crossed).

I will be starting out on my venture again soon, I have a journey to go on to get back to where I was and then some.

I also hope to burn off the weight that I put on over the past few years so I will be losing weight and running miles for the next 23 months ( I wonder what happens in 2020 ;-) ).

Thank you, The Wombling Plodder
