You will no doubt be here because you have heard I am running the London Marathon in support of Embrace the Middle East.
Having run a marathon in 2013, I am fully aware of the pain and suffering to which I have agreed and hope that you consider my agreement to put myself through it again a reflection of how worthwhile I consider Embrace the Middle East's work to be.
I've been volunteering for Embrace the Middle East since 2012 and have had the pleasure of representing them a number of times at Greenbelt Festival, discussing their work with members of the public.
Any donations are very, very gratefully received. They are going to a truly worthwhile cause.
I will be documenting the ups and downs of my training on my Facebook page, so do follow along here: https://www.facebook.com/davidjamesarmstrong
