Most of you already know that in March 2016 I will be 50, wasn't that 10 years ago I hear you say !!
To celebrate the run up to my half century I am taking on two of the hardest challenges the North of England has to offer in the Coast To Coast and Great North Run to raise money for the children's charity Grace House in Sunderland shown opposite.
I won't be doing this again (even if I do survive to see 50) so instead of that expensive present you planned to buy for me can I ask you to make a donation here instead.
