I always said - vaguely - that I'd like to do the marathon at some point - and now that point has arrived! I've been trying to get at least slightly in shape over recent months and so it's the best chance I'm going to have - and also gets it done before I turn 50.
Its a huge personal challenge - I've never really been a runner as many of you will know, and as I write, I'm at 6km in training runs- so a long long way to go!
So that's where you all come in, your support will help to inspire me and to change the lives of children in the Sheffield region and all over the UK..
Let's face it, I'll be nagging for the next 11 months - so why not donate early and relax, whilst I get on with pounding the streets.
