Having spent the last few months marathon training, I am pleased to say that I have made it to the end in one piece but wanted to reach this stage before publicising my efforts! As I am highly unlikely to be silly enough to agree to another marathon during my lifetime I’ve chosen to run for a charity with a presence across the UK. Running in a bear suit was a step too far, but running for a bear seemed achievable.
BBC Children in Need support disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK. With our support, they are able to change almost half a million young lives across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland every single year.
Assuming I am able to, I will add a post-race update and photo (sausage roll in hand) next week !
