Rosie has played her part in all this too – quite apart from being the main inspiration for taking up the challenge in the first place, she has also been working on some limbering up exercises for us. This last couple of weeks she has been sitting up, then slowly (with her legs out in front) leaning forwards, so far forward that she is quite literally folded in two! It's remarkable just how bendy our Budlington is – a future gymnast in the making perhaps?
The pictures below show the stretching exercise I'm referring to and I'm sure you'll forgive the three of us for not even attempting it, or we'd definitely be calling the run off due to injury!
Rosie is off on her travels to London tomorrow to celebrate her cousin Olivia's first birthday but will be back on Sunday to cheer us on! So, as the house will be boys only for the next three days, I'm thinking indoor footy and pizza's may well be back on the agenda – get in!
There is still time to donate on the Running For Rosie page, however, as I've said all along, this run is as much about raising positive awareness for Down's syndrome as it is about fundraising for our chosen charities. I look forward to sharing a few pics from the run in the next post and shall sign off wishing my beautiful niece Olivia a very Happy first Birthday! x
