Breast Cancer Charity Run

I had expected a quiet post race season but that’s not the way it is turning out !

Yesterday, a group of us joined in a running and spinning event at the gym I go to in Brussels called Aspria to raise money for research into breast cancer cures and treatment. We booked a treadmill for eight hours but we were victims of our own success and ended up colonising other treadmills when a slot fell vacant.

It was a huge lot of fun : a guitarist, a drummer, a DJ and even a couple of dancers provided entertainment as we ran and span.

I don’t know how yet much money we all raised but the organisers seemed very pleased with how it was turning out.

As for the running part, I simply couldn’t stop and ran for five hours – two hours, followed by a break for an hour or so and then another block of three hours or near enough. I had never run for so long in a single day before. In truth, 24 hours later, I feel great today !
