    I wasn't sure where to post this but wanted to share this from P&P section. A number of us parents and partners have formed a team - Ninja's Worriers for this event. We are doing the 5K challenge to raise money for the RM charity.
    I have set up a just giving page and we would love your support however small. You are also welcome to cheer us on, say Hi or even join us if you are so inclined to the madness.

    Please PM me for the just giving link or to ask anything else.

    And another bump.

    Less than two weeks now before a team of forum Partners & Parents take on the challenge of the Endurance Course at Woodbury Common near CTCRM to raise money for the Royal Marines Charity.

    The team name Ninja's Worriers reflects the worrying done at home by families while their Nods are in RT.

    Please consider clicking on the team's fund raising page, checking it out and hopefully giving a few quid:

    https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/andrea-illsley

    The cumulative benefit of many small donations can make a big difference. Even the value of a pint of beer will bump up the total towards the team's target.

    Vocal encouragement for Ninja's Worriers on the day will be most welcome too. Event details can be found via links on the JustGiving page.
    Cheers. :)

    Bump

    I may be starting to regret giving it big time to my other half that I would smash this challenge, he has found it particularly amusing that I thought I wouldn’t get my hair wet now having seen the video clips I see it is quite a possibility -nailbiting- which means my mascara will also be ruined

    I'll bring a mirror along, so that adjustments can be made.

    Alternatively, just ask the PTIs. They'll have the full works, possibly including mascara, on their person!:D

    Bizarrely looking forward to the challenge weekend but probably because I get to meet up with old friends and hopefully make some new ones. Roll on Saturday. :D

    With a bit of luck, Woodbury Common will be completely dry.;)Not a hint of mud to be seen; bright sunshine and no wind:cool:.............but in a way I think I would feel cheated if it was like that;) See everyone on Saturday, if not before. xx

    The Met Office five-day-forecast suggests that Saturday will be cloudy but dry so at least you won't be ♪ ♫ Crying in the Rain ♪ ♫ ♪

    Well we are nearly there and I am fine tuning my training! I have stepped up to adding extra ice to my gin just to get me ready for the cold!

    I now have so much neoprene in my outfit now that I am beginning to look a little like a seal! So pleased they have heated the pool and swept the tunnels - what could possibly go wrong!

    Thank you to everyone that has donated for those of you still considering it I could be pursuaded to Post @arny01 competition time and for an extra couple of quid we could make him do all those Hill sprints that he makes everyone else do! ;)
