Tickbox Marketing are entering the Bath Half Marathon this year, and I am running for Bath Cats and Dogs Home, one of the largest re-homing centres in the UK with over 3,000 unwanted cats, dogs and small animals they help every year.
How You Can Help
If you are able to make a donation to help the home in their work I’d be very grateful.
As BCDH say “All donations are put to good use at the Home, whether it is pocket change or a lump sum.”
£5 will run a heat lamp for a sick animal for two weeks
£7 will buy kongs and activity balls to keep the dogs minds busy
£10 gives exercise equipment for a ferret or hamster
£12 will buy cream to stop white cats and dogs getting sunburn
£25 will provide a bed to keep an elderly dog warm or microchip a new animal
£40 will neuter or castrate a cat
£60 will neuter or castrate a dog
£150 will provide shelter in the exercise paddocks
Training has been going well, although training over the winter has been hard work.
With less than 2 weeks until the run I went on an 8 mile run on Sunday:
I use an iPhone running/training app called Cyclemeter for tracking my runs, and used it to generate the map route above. It’s useful to track your progress, and keep track of your runs. It’s also handy for accurately find out the length of your regular runs.
It’s a really good app, and it uses the iPhone’s GPS so the distance and speed calculations are really accurate compared to iPhone/iPod running apps like Nike+.
