Terry Fox – 8.5km Run

The time has come to test my fitness and put my mind into something physically challenging.  I started training yesterday for the Terry Fox 8.5km run in Dubai. Yes, i know… it’s only 8.5km, but for someone who lost their athleticism the minute she started working 2 years ago, it’s not going to be a walk in the park. 

For those of you who aren’t in the know of Terry Fox:  this 21 year old amputee runner attempted to cross Canada to raise money for cancer research. The Terry Fox runs’ happen all over the world and all the money raised is remitted to the International Union Against Cancer in Geneva.

The run is for a very important cause and I really urge anyone who is in Dubai to get their jog on and register.  I will be running it in loving memory of my best friends Mama, Ziba Calamawy. I’ll be thinking of auntie Ziba and the whole family throughout ❤
