OMG Beth's running a race??

My page:

Once upon a time there was a girl called Beth who hated PE. Running was a particular hate and only necessary when she needed to catch a bus. 6 years ago I started "running" and was super pleased to make it around Roath Lake without stopping. Then winter came and my trainers went away. Forever.

Then Jeff came along. Have you met Jeff? He's good people. He has, somehow, convinced me that I can and should join his Bigmoose crew to run the Cardiff Half Marathon. In October. This October. Yeah.

Along with some of the guys from Crafty Devil, I'm running in support of Mind. Mental Health services in the UK are woefully underfunded right now. Mind Cymru are working to make sure everyone in Wales has access to the mental health information, support and services they need. They won’t give up until everyone with a mental health problem in Wales is treated fairly, positively and with respect. This is a cause that’s very close to me; having had some of my own MH issues I have first hand experience of the system and it needs a huge shake-up.

So, I have new trainers. I even have a bumbag thing to put my keys and phone in. Let's do this thing.
