Thank you for reading my page.
I am lucky enough to be running the marathon to raise money for a fantastic cause - the Art Room.
This will be my first marathon, aged 40, pretty much the definition of a mid life crisis - happily this will be a crisis genuinely put to good use if you are generous and kind enough add a donation.
I am aiming to finish in 3hr 30mins, and donation-based "encouragements" will spur me to beat this time line.
My updates 7
3.54.07 the final count - 1.45.01 half way
Finished - not quite the time envisioned but it was an amazing day - I really really woulda not have finished without you all backing me - thank you ...
got my race number, 55162 (for what its worth) about to eat a mountain of lasagna...
Thank you everyone - with offline stuff am over 5k - thank you ;
concept 2: having a nice glass of wine afterwards - thank you all again
Charity Registration No. 1088739
The Art Room offers art as therapy to children and aged 5-16 using art to raise their self esteem, self confidence and independence. Our aim is to avoid exclusion and help children 'learn and achieve through art' and to help re-engage back in to main stream school.
Good to see your mid life crisis resulted in something this positive, mine that resulted in drinking more wine! best of luck and hope all is well

I was at the Mall to see the elite finishers, and must have just missed you!? Well run - anything under 4hr is great.
