Putting a bit back

Had a nice surprise tonight, I just happened to log onto Facebook and saw that Ray, a member of my secondary club, had asked for some assistance. He is using his skills and expertise to organise a low key 10km race for charity in my local area which is hard work at the best of time. It transpires he received an email from a visually impaired lady who was looking for a Guide Runner to assist her.

After a quick think about weekend logistics ( news to follow) I jumped at the chance and await an email from the lady so we can make arrangements to meet. It looks to be a reasonably challenging course, mainly road with a section of trail to negotiate twice....I am really looking forward to it.

  1. That is awesome! Back in the 1990's I was a regular guide runner for two blind runners. Went up to marathon distance with them. Hard work but so rewarding.
