Welcome to my blog!
I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

Cancer Research - The Training begins!
The race looms closer… On June 9th I will be running the Cancer Research Race for Life – and yes I actually plan to run it!
So I thought I’d best get some training in if I’m to make it all the way around this course in one piece, and after a few trial runs to scope out the area I have finally found myself a nice little route.
Little being the word! Turns out, once I actually measured the distance, it is a puny 2.5k! Which is half the length I will need to run on the day!
Still at least it has given me some idea of what I’m aiming for – am currently pooped before I’m halfway round!
Good thing I have 13 weeks to build up some stamina!
Sponsorship is ticking along nicely – I plan to get some fabric pens this weekend to start decorating my t-shirt with the first messages – pictures to follow!
If you want to take part in my t-shirt challenge and have someone remembered, or want to tell to world you beat cancer, please head over to my just giving page Here!
Thank you all, you lovely people.
