On April 24 I’m competing in the London Marathon. So far the longest race I’ve done is a ten-miler. Which is about the furthest I’ve ever run in one go. That’s not even half a marathon.
Can I run more than ten miles? Probably – but at the moment there’s actually no proof I can do so quickly. So it’s time to put that right, but running half a marathon. Or a half marathon, if you will.
So me and friend and running pal Matt Burt (who is also running the London Marathon for the South West Children’s Heart Circle, and who you can sponsor here) weighed up a number of half marathons in mid-February, before settling on entering a particularly glamorous looking one in… Wokingham.
Really, who hasn’t wanted to go running in Wokingham in mid-February?
By the way, the great sponsorship push has started, and now the aim is to raise as much money for the South West Children’s Heart Circle as possible (read why here). To donate, just click the button below. Thanks!
