I had my 2nd appointment at the Jesmond Clinic with Alison after work. She was very pleased with the recovery my feet had made to date and continued to do further chiropody work and massage on my feet and ankles. She thinks that I'm only a week away from running. I can't tell you just how much I'm desperate to get my trainers back on and hit the streets again.
I've had some nice emails from a couple of running clubs this week. I'll be pursuing these with a view to getting some quality back in my running. It'll also be nice to have some company during my runs after work.
Thanks also to those folk who have been in touch about after dinner speaking. I'm really flattered that people are keen to listen to what I have to say about the run across the USA. The first engagement that I have is at the Leisureworks Sports & Physical Activity Awards on the 16th September. Taking the audience on the journey across the USA in my allotted 20 minute time slot is going to be a huge challenge. I'm really looking forward to it and the fee that I'll be receiving will be donated to The Children's Foundation.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has bought tickets for the Run Geordie Run Ball on September 3rd. Thanks also to the many companies and individuals who have donated a prize for the raffle and auction. Your help is greatly appreciated.
