my good palinte friends.... by irishladette on 24 April 2006 3:39pm
 
I set myself a challenge for the year 2006 - 2 marathons, 2 continents one week..... Dublin 30th October and New York on 5th November. I want to raise lots and lots and lots of dosh to make it all the more worthwhile, for lots and lots and lots of great charities around the World. So, if you can, please give something to a charity of YOUR choice, let me know what charity you are giving to (NOT the amount that's up to you and is private) so that I can write it on my T-shirt which will be ever so smelly as I cross the line in NYC. By seeing all these wonderful causes written on my T-shirt it will spur me on!!! I've done marathons before, and 6 months to go, my training is on.......... so let's help others less fortunate than ourselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for your support and I'll let you all know how i get on.

We have time. Maybe as a group we can decide on something. Then, you would have publicity for you and us.

Through the website I posted, contact Mary Bryant. She has all sorts of contacts and might be able to help. I haven't spoken with her in months. She is very amenable.

Maybe we could have a get-together in Dublin or New York, at the same time supporting Irishladette in the marathon!

For those out there who are ever thinking of doing this ... 6 months to go my training for this week: 12 miles road walk / run 6 miles uphill, 30 km on treadmill 6 blocks of 5km, weights class, 1500 m in the pool in one session, 6 hours on various non impact machines in the gym 2000 m rowing machine in one session, game of squash for 1/2 hour, 20 miles horse riding, and walking the dogs for 1 1/2 miles every day. I also work full time and have a pretty good social life!

OK Ladette, let us in on the secret. How did you invent the 48 hour day? LOL!

What kind of work do you do?
