As you may know I’ve been running The Great North Run for a few years now. I use the word running to indicate a kind of wheezing shamble that gets me from one end of the course to another.
This year I decided to add to my repertoire of shambling by running the Edinburgh Marathon (26+) miles the week after my 50th birthday. Let no-one say I don’t know how to celebrate in style!
I’ve decided that I’ll get sponsorship and run for Cancer Research UK. Since I do work with cancer patients and support groups and some of my loved ones past and present have had to deal with cancer it seems like the right choice.
You will see widget on the right hand side of my webpage inviting you to donate. It’s simple, secure, and a lot easier than running 26 miles. Please give generously: it’s going to a good cause and I could use the extra motivation.
