My story

[p]Well, I did it! That was THE hottest, hardest run ever and my slowest marathon so far!! I quickly realised that my target sub-five hour run was unattainable, so instead I decided to go with whatever happened. At one point I thought of giving up, then going for under 6 hours, so I'm happy enough with 5:26:47. For the record, I was about average for women of my age and, pleasingly, ahead of 20% of male runners of all ages LOL. [/p][p]Utange Orphans Charity is the work of a friend at my church, who established a home for 24 AIDS orphans. She has provided them with a loving family home and education to university level where appropriate. In addition, every week she gives a meal and food supplies to 500 children in the village who could otherwise not be sure of a meal every day. Her latest endeavour is to build a secondary school in Utange. You can read all about the project at https://utangeorphans.org.[/p][p]It's not too late to donate. Thank you for your interest and support. It will make a significant difference in the lives of the young people of Utange.[/p]
