I've now been training for the event since just after Christmas and its involved running in, quite literally, snow rain and ice for much of that time. So as you hear about the Brighton run tomorrow and then the London marathon the following week and think "ooh, what nice weather to run in" just remember the training that's gone into it!
So .. this is one last plea for sponsorship. When I set out to do this marathon I was doing so in support of my cousin, who at the time had breast cancer. She's listed as one of my sponsors on this page but the illness sadly took her just weeks ago. And a very good friend of mine in America also lost his fight earlier this year. I know I'm hardly the only one, and indeed some of the readers who have already kindly sponsored me have told me about their own experiences, so we all have a very real reason to support the fight against this disease.
As you'll see I've raised 95% of the £500 I set out to raise for Cancer Research UK thus far - if you're able to tip me over the target I shall be eternally grateful. Thanks for reading - oh, and blogging might take a back seat till late monday!
