To all my ''two oceans marathon'' sponsors

My run,turned out to be one of a kind-tourture with blessings and gratitude.Like I have always said,running and sweating to touch a heart is the greatest feel and I would say ``a must feel'' to all those who run and those who support the course.

I do remember vividly when I announced my intetion to do a 56km to raise funds for a needy family,I received alot of mixed feelings ,eager and bitter questions.''Why do you want to torture your body for nothimg ,you know you can never win'' ? How will this benefit you? The irritating how's were endless.To be honest ,I never at any one time considered to quit.Their critique pressured me to push on.I held my answers tight and promised to asnwer them some day,I feel I should do it now and here,by giving by gratitude to all my sponsors and suppoters big and small.
As you know no act of kindness stop on it own,I assure Iam still passing the baton of the kindness you passed to me.

Janice Wang of world purse,believeing in someone you only know by picture and words was trully impressive.Your act of kindness will spell out your name far in a remote village in Africa.A desperlate family will soon be sheltered in a comfortable house which you have personally and heartly contributed to.Words can never say enough,but you are a song of praise.

Mike Kamannga director of Kamanga lodge and tours you simplified your words of kindness in few words,''giving is better than receaving,you can never get more if you do not give,for there is no room for more'' waoh!
John my brother and sweetheart,I know you have always trusted in me.You have stood by me all the time.In tears you encouraged me to laugh for its the only medicine to live longer.Supporting me to sweat for the needy was the greatest gift you ever wrapped for me.I will always love you sweatheart!

Safaricom LTD ,Sivad LTD and Plend LTD .I can only say you will be seen through my sweat.Consolata of Womans hope ,you have always been there side and side sharing muscle cramps and torture uphills.I did it but we won togteher-I know we will do more and touch millions of needy hearts.Jeniffer of world pulse,your encouraging lines on running keep me moving-keep training.We are watching and waiting for your big day.
Mum and dadi .I know you read not pulsewire,but you are the reason Iam sweating for the needy.Thank you for bringing me up as a good girl.
To the whole community of pulsewire,your prayers and moral support was part of my success.Together we can do more.

Your heart of support is full of blessings because Givers gain.Your words of encouragement gives me strength to carry on and on.

Hip hip Hooray!

You did it! I am so thrilled for you. You are my big inspiration! Tonight is my run night. I will run for you, with the wind under my feet.

I loved reading about your run through the national park. I laughed out loud when I read about the elephants. How are you feeling today? I hope you are drinking lots and lots of water.

"Solely" yours,
Jennifer

Lets do it!

Dear Chiku,
For those who believe in themselves nothing is impossible. I am glad that one day you insisted that I can also do it. You kept on telling me age is just a number. I started believing in myself and now I do what we promised ourselves to do, Running out there for the less fortunate. At the age of 40, I feel like i am as young as 25 ,wao!
Lets do this as long as we are strong. May Almighty bless us all the Sole Sistas, to enable us reach out to as many people as possible,
Warm Hugs,
Sole Sistas,
Consolata
