    Story

    I hate running.

    I'm not good at running.

    I know let's do a 10k cross country run up and down the steep hills of Surrey on a Saturday morning!

    If I'm going to do this then I may as well raise some money in exchange for my pain! (8 weeks ago I managed a grand total of 1.4km on my first "run")

    I do quite a lot of volunteer work for MEAction a US charity that works on advocacy for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME sometimes known as CFS)

    They are looking to employ a full time UK coordinator and are raising funds hoping to do this later in 2018.

      Thank you everyone for the sponsorship! With the remaining verbal pledges we'll just hit £350 towards an excellent cause. For those who don't already know I completed the course in a personal best time (but not exactly a competitive time) in rather _warm_ conditions. Today my legs are paying for it, but it was all worth it!

      Thank you so much everyone so far! I've also had £30 given by people offline so it's just about 50% of the way there. Oh and the forecast for Saturday morning is now 24C...
