Fear no more

#322: What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

Travelling to a foreign country (where English isn’t widely known) by myself. I’ve never travelled alone before (as in holiday, not tube journey), as I always feel like I’d become a target what with being 5″2, female and generally a kind (some may say too kind) person.

I guess the only thing I could do is just get on with it and bite the bullet, but I think as it’s such an alien concept is always manage to convince myself not to do it. I feel like I need to find a buddy who is in the same situation – then we can ease ourselves into the single traveller lifestyle. I’ve been recommended a few websites that organise group holidays for single travellers (no, not for dating!), but the trips have always been so expensive.

Eeek! Tomorrow is the big day!

So in the UK, I only have 20 minutes until it’s tomorrow and I realise I’ve been so busy preparing for tomorrow’s race, that I’ve completely forgotten to write todays post! Major eeek! I read the prompt but couldn’t think of a suitable answer, so I thought I’d instead write a brief post about tomorrow.

Tomorrow, also Father’s Day here in the UK, will be my first ever charity run. I’m competing in Cancer Research’s 5K Race for Life, with my mum, cousin and brave Auntie, who beat cancers tookus a couple of years back. My target was to raise £100 but unfortunately I am £40 short 😦 I’m thinking of selling some of my stuff on eBay when I get home tomorrow and giving the money to my page so that I can reach my target. If anyone fancies donating, my page is http://www.justgiving.com/chloe-may-ward. All donations, no matter how big or small, are greatly appreciated. 

For a long time, and before the incredibly inspirational Stephen Sutton, I’ve seen donating to Cancer Research as an investment into the lives and futures of all my friends and family. So many people get this truly cr*ppy disease and it needs to stop. So, cancer… I’m coming to get you!!!
