London Marathon 2010
My addiction continues! I’m back in London for the Marathon, which is tomorrow, Sunday 25th April. Again, I’ve been lucky to get a place that does not require sponsorship, through my excellent running club, Edinburgh Athletic Club.
This year, there are two charities I’m supporting:
- Fishermen’s Mission support deep sea fishermen – the guys who put food on your plate. It’s one of the toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupations, and one of their goals is to provide fishermen with a lightweight survival suit, so they can do their job safely. Here’s the sponsorship page.
- My second charity is the Stroke Association. I’m supporting them for close personal reasons. Here’s the sponsorship page.
I know that the proliferation of online giving means a lot of us get more requests for sponsorship each year, so I’m not doing a hard sell here, but they are both great causes and will make good use of your money.
On a lighter note, if you’d prefer to buy me a beer following the race, then send Hazel or me a text, and I’ll let you know where I am. Co-ordinating is always fun!
This year, I’m simplifying, and may well run without GPS watch or even my phone. You can track me by texting ‘run’ to 83040 [in the UK], and then you’ll get a link to the service. My runner number is 26793.
