My story

[p]Dear Sponsor / Donator[/p][p]LIBERATING MYSELF, BY RUNNING 160 MILES IN 96 HOURS THROUGH ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING DESERTS IN THE WORLD; EVERYTHING IS ATTAINABLE - TO LIVE, IS, TO BE![/p][p]I have been through an awful lot in life, and have survived to be able to detail this very paragraph, however my analysis of it, is that I have survived and have come through it all to lead a wonderful extraordinary and blessed life whilst others have nothing at all and still continue to struggle, so a simple 160 mile run in 96 hours is a drop in the ocean.  Although a very deeply personal challenge and a challenge that I have been wanting to do since the age of 11; I now find myself fulfilling a lifelong dream and at the same time being able to raise monies for those who need in the most.[/p][p]Follow me whilst I blog about my journey:[/p][p][url=http://ultramarathonvirginrunner.blogspot.co.uk/]http://ultramarathonvirginrunner.blogspot.co.uk/[/url][/p][p]The Ocean Floor Race is a non-stop footrace of 160 miles through one of the most beautiful and surreal landscapes on earth. With a time limit of 4 days to complete this desert ultra-marathon event, entrants will navigate with GPS devices through the Egyptian Western desert and specifically the Egyptian White Desert to check-points every 15 miles.  This magical event encompasses the true meaning of adventure and one that inspires the imagination.[/p][p][url=http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/]http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/[/url][/p][p][url=http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/the-desert-2/]http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/the-desert-2/[/url][/p][p]"The Ocean Floor Race" is so called due to the location being covered by the Tethys Ocean over 200 million years ago. Evidence of this is everywhere; ocean floor bedrock has been carved into fantastic shapes by the wind and sand over millions of years. The desert is a wonderland of over-sized mushrooms, kneeling camels, sitting ducks, dessert meringues and towering spires. Literally thousands of rock formations scatter the desert landscape making it an amazingly magical place to navigate through.[/p][p][url=http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/the-race-3/]http://www.oceanfloorrace.com/the-race-3/[/url][/p][p][url=http://youtu.be/lcIaRGzJFuU]http://youtu.be/lcIaRGzJFuU[/url][/p][p]Not only will you be helping children with neurological disabilities but families desperate for a drop of water. Every child matters & every child is the future. On behalf of Brainwave, Water for Kids & myself, may you all be blessed abundantly & know that your money will & does make a difference. Having a glass of water or simply being able to write your name is taken for granted, please help those to experience what you automatically do every day.[/p][p]Brainwave has helped me with my son Bastian for the last 3 years, and without their help, my son would not be the chid he is today.[/p][p]Water for Kids is a Charity close to my heart, we as a world and a universe need to first take stock on what the real purpose of life is all about, without water life is meaningless. Water forAll![/p][p]With appreciation always, Janet xxx[/p][p][url=http://www.brainwave.org.uk/]http://www.brainwave.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][url=http://waterforkids.org.uk/]http://waterforkids.org.uk/[/url][/p]
