Yes, Gemmill...

...I'm fundraising again, but I'm using Virgin Money Giving instead of JustGiving like you told me to. Happy now? ;)

 

Anyway, in a move entirely totally not driven by impending post-40 decrepitude, I've decided to take on the Great North Run next month and the Royal Parks Half in October. I'm doing it to raise money for the Cure Parkinson's Trust, because Parkinson's is a thoroughly rubbish condition to suffer from and the CPT do dead good work in funding advances in treating it.


I know I've fished for donations for past running endeavours on here before, but if any of yous happen to have a few quid burning a hole in your pocket and you fancy donating to a good cause, my page is here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?pageId=954934

 

I can promise semi-regular training updates, though sadly they probably won't all involve me high-fiving a Womble.

:blush: Thank you. You're very decent, you are.

 

you're an actual runner now, you should be doing this in costume to make it harder

Considering the charity please run this as Marty McFly and carry a ghetto blaster/boombox constantly playing back in time and power of love on a loop

 

:good:

I did do a hilly half as part of a Peter Pan team last year, but the crocodile onesie was sadly unsalvagable after 21k on a hot day. :D

I may have failed to make good on this promise. :ph34r: Anyway, the GNR went pretty well, finished just outside 1:57 despite the unexpectedly warm conditions on the day and never really getting up a head of steam because it's so crowded. Royal Parks Half this Sunday for the second part of the challenge - only 15,000 or so runners compared with the GNR's 40k+, so it should be a little more pleasant on that front at least. :)
