My story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page.</p> <p>One cold &amp; wet November lunch time I went for a run, because I couldn't be bothered walking for 10 min to get to the gym, the one I pay &pound;40 a month not to use.<br /> <br /> Perhaps I was dizzy from the exhertion, or perhaps I was high on the endorphines from doing some exercise, but I decided to take part in the<a href="http://www.greatrun.org/events/event.aspx?id=4"> BUPA Great Manchester Run</a> on 16th May 2010.</p> <p>At the time of registering for the run I didn't realise I would be 20 weeks pregnant on the weekend, but after speaking to my midwife &amp; doctors I realised I could still take part, but much <strong>much</strong> slower than I expected!</p> <p>I made it through the course in 1 hour 36 min and 48 seconds and ended in bright sunshine!</p> <p>Many many thanks to everyone who's donated already, and just as many to everyone who's thinking about it. This page will be open untill 16th August 2010.</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Heart Research UK. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.</p> <p>If you aren't able to donate online, but would still like to donate then please let me know, I have a donations box in my SUBWAY store in Preston &amp; any size donation would be greatly recieved!</p> <p>I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p>If you want to know more you could visit my <a href="http://www.facebook.com/millie.lavelle?ref=profile#!/pages/Preston-United-Kingdom/Running-For-The-Quiet/319803796150" target="_blank">Facebook page</a> <a href="http://runningforthequiet.blogspot.com/">blog, or </a><a href="http://twitter.com/runforthequiet">follow my twitter!</a> <a href="http://runningforthequiet.blogspot.com/"><br /></a></p> <p>Thanks again I couldn't have done it without you!</p> <p>Millie</p>
