Story

It took me ages to choose a charity to run for, but I didn't want to run without one, because then I'm just one of those guys that's showing off by running longer distances than is logical - I know how you all feel about that, at least 7 of you have told me you're sick of seeing the May My Run reports on Facebook.

I mean really, we weren't designed for these distances. In caveman days, did the cave men and women run 13 miles? No. They'd only ever run for about 20 seconds at a time, because by the time 20 seconds had passed, they'd either have found a cave or a bush to hide in, or they would have been eaten by that sabre-toothed tiger.

But now I'm on top of the food chain, and nourishment is plentiful and easily accessible, I have decided to do a big run... because, nourishment is plentiful and easily accessible. You get what I'm saying?

However, there are other issues with this plentiful society that we live in - and that is that in retaining such wild levels of plentifulness, both the planet and a certain number of people, have to suffer. 

This is nothing new, so I'm not going to spend a great deal of time calling for something to be done, because we know things could be more equal and sustainable - it's difficult, so these days we do our bit by sponsoring running Andys. 

So - do give generously to Friends of the Earth, a long-standing, well-rounded and important charity, for it is my desire that you do.

And remember, we're helping to save the world here, guys. We're basically superheroes.
