As many of you may know, I love trees. Maybe it’s all the time I spent outdoors as a kid, maybe it’s reading The Lorax over and over, or maybe it’s that field biology course I took at Austin Community College.
I’ve also been trying to get back in shape. Since I’m working freelance, I can no longer ride my bike to work. So, Joanne and I have been running on Clapham Common. We’re not very good at it yet. We just managed to make it five minutes without stopping. It doesn’t sound like much , but believe me, it felt like a major accomplishment.
We’ve set ourselves a goal of being able to finish 5k by September 15th. “Why that particular date?” you may be asking yourself. That just happens to be the day that Trees for Cities holds its annual Tree-Athlon.
You can help us help Trees for Cities plant trees in London and other cities in the UK by visiting our justgiving page and sponsoring us. We would greatly appreciate it if you did, and so would the Lorax.
