Hi everyone, My sister and I are taking part in the Great North Run for the Alzheimer's society on Oct 1st. We've never done anything like it before, so intend to train hard over the summer. We really wanted to do it to raise as much money as possible for the society as our gran has developed severe memory problems and has just been put on medication. If any half-marathoners have any tips please let us know and if anyone would like to sponsor us, please visit: http://www.justgiving.com/helenandkat Many thanks Helen P.s. good luck to anyone else taking part, if any of you want to stay in contact that would be great!
