March has just flew by this year. I can't quite believe its nearly over. Its been a pretty busy month all round. Work has been mostly busy and I really feel I'm settling in to my new job.

The big thing this month isn't work related though. Over in the side bar of this very blog, there is a Just Giving widget. I had one last year for my sister who ran the 5km Race for life for cancer research. This year, the widget is marking that I'm running the Race for life. I'm not entirely sure it was a completely sane thought but I'm partly doing it in solidarity with my mum and sister who are running it also. My mum was diagnosed with diabetes several months back and has done a tremendous job in changing her lifestyle to attack it head on. She now goes to the gym 3 times a week and has lost loads of weight. So when she said she had thought about running it, I really had to agree to do it too. Cancer in all its forms has touch my life both personally and professionally over the years so its a good cause.

I'm planning some prize incentives for donations, which I will reveal soon and if you are reading this and would like to donate a prize, please get in touch via the comments. Any donation of any sort is very appreciated and if you aren't in a position to donate, then good thoughts for a successful and safe run are helpful too.

I've been knitting away most of the month but alas I can't share some of things just yet as they are presents. I did finish a pink version of the snapdragon tam that I knit for myself. This one is for my sister.

Right its time for the gym and some more training. I do have some fairly snazzy shoes to wear.
