Story

My name is Andrew Burns and I turned 50-years old in December 2013 - somewhat insanely, I plan to run the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 25th May 2014.

I have run 5 Marathons before (a long time ago in 1983/1984!) and, way back then, I rather foolishly bet my Dad I'd run another when I turned 50-years old. The bet was for a pint and a fiver. I'm not bothered about the fiver, but I want to win that pint :-)

I also plan to do the run for the charity, Venture Scotland. And, I'm intending to keep a blipfoto diary (for 1-year only) from late May 2013 through to late May 2014, to record my training and fundraising exploits. My last blipfoto entry will hopefully be of me, drinking that pint :-))

P.S. I also happen to be the Council Leader in Edinburgh but please don't hold that against me!
