Midnight – November 19th
So there are just a few hours to go until the Great Ethiopian Run in Addis Ababa – the excitement is palpable and the bus is picking us up at 6am to take us to the start-line. There are going to be 42,000 runners in what Haile Gebrselassie described as one big carnival – we plan to dance after every kilometre! I don’t think we are going to get much sleep tonight. I interviewed Haile Gebrselassie yesterday and today we got to dance with him at the pasta party. What an extraordinary couple of days!
The Great Ethiopian Run will be broadcast live on Ethiopian TV, so do look out for our team, which is called “Tutus For Change” because we are running with Tutu Melaku wearing tutus and we are all trying change lives in Ethiopia as Ambassadors for Partners For Change Ethiopia. If you can, please make a donation, however small. Thank you!
