So as i was lounging about on the net (as usual) i thought i needed a new challenge in life. I feel like at this point my life is at a stand still– there isn’t much excitment..better yet there is no real challenge i need to face. I posted on my Facebook status that I need a challenge and a friend of mine, Fauz El-kindiy said I should join the Gabs marathon.
Marathon?!?! i never knew Gaborone city had a marathon! Wow, it is actually quite interesting–good way to keep healthy, great to put on your resume and should be fun when you join with friends as a group effort, a way of doing something new, something different in life.Anyway– he sent me the link to the site and now I’m actually considering joining a marathon! I know, i know, i am miss big booty Judy but hey, who says that should stop me in joining? It is for a good cause!
The Gaborone City Marathon on April 18, 2010 is a charity event. All registration fees will go to the following five charities: Botswana Heart Foundation, Lady Khama Charitable Trust, Seeing is Believing, Sponsor A Child Trust Fund and Y Care Charitable Trust.
