I’ve been super impressed with the achievements of friends and work colleagues who successfully completed the Run For The Kids last Sunday. For those that don’t know, RFTK is a fun run over 14.6 kilometres through Melbourne (http://www.runforthekids.com.au/r4k/). Money raised goes to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. It’s one of the more interesting runs in that it takes in the Domain tunnel and the Bolte Bridge, two pieces of infrastructure that don’t see pedestrians in / on them any other time during the year.

I’m sufficiently enthused to want to do exactly the same. So I went on Facebook earlier this week to declare that in 12 months time, I will be at least 7 kilograms lighter and will have just completed the Run For The Kids.

It was fantastic to get the support that came through in people’s comments. Of course, I got the usual smart arse remarks from the usual suspects (thanks Chris & Mick).

I just wanted to make sure that my commitment was out there in my blog for constant review, rather than hidden away in Facebook statuses (is that a word?). I AM DETERMINED IT WILL HAPPEN NEXT YEAR.

Dave from Step into Life Mordialloc wants me to do a 10 kilometre run in July. Hmm, that’s only four months away. Watch this space.
