Sierra Leone Marathon 2014

Getting into my stride

Hi, my name is Simon Bianco and I'm training to be an Energy Underwriter at Kiln.

 

I've never written a blog before, run a marathon, or been to Sierra Leone - so now is as good a time as any to start all three!KSLM_Simon _Bianco _200pix

 

I'm hoping that I'll get into my stride for both the writing and the running when I start training after Christmas, but at the moment I'm mainly just very excited about the prospect of seeing the country for myself and raising money for a fantastic cause.

 

Having studied Sierra Leone as a case study at university with regards to its devastating civil war and subsequent efforts for international development, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to support Street Child, whose work tackles such major issues as poverty, education, and economic sustainability. 

 

What incredible motivation - even if it is for preparing to run long distance at dawn in a tropical climate! With the combination of visiting Street Child's projects in Makeni, it will be an extraordinary experience that I hope as many people as possible sign up for and encourage with their donations. 

 

Updates about endorphin highs and exhaustion lows to come!
