On 11 November I will be taking part in my first ever boxing bout and I'm bloody terrified.
Fortunately, a little fear is good for the soul and in my case, good for the kiwi - I'm using the bout to raise money for Kiwis for Kiwi, a great charity dedicating to preserving our national bird.
I suffer from an inherent lack of co-ordination so getting my legs and arms working in unison will be a challenge in itself. Please help soften the blow(s) of intense training by donating to this great cause! I'm aiming to raise $2000 for Kiwis for Kiwi by first bell.
Anyone who knows me knows I love to send postcards, so for every $5 donated I'll send one to you or your nominee. Good times!
I'll be making regular posts here about the progress of my training. I've already cried twice so it's bound to be a laugh riot!
