In 2013 I ran the London Marathon and wanted to do something else this year, so I guess this is where I ended up - goodness knows what 2015 might bring.
Do look up on the ZSL website for what this involves on August 14th 2014. If you do decide to sponsor me for this silliness then many thanks, if not - thank you for trying to stop me doing stupid stuff in future. Some people throw themselves off buildings for a cause, I'm going to humiliate myself in public (well, in a zoo).
For the record I am also doing a 10K around Whipsnade on June 8 but after 26.2 miles that is less or a challenge.
At least this will spur me on to get fitter in the next few months! I can feel the pain from the sit ups already.
Zoos and the like are a contentious subject, and not everyone agrees with them, but if they have any place it is in captive breeding and research, related to the goal of preserving species in the wild, and that is what I am supporting.
Apparently I get to walk through the tiger exhibit afterwards; thankfully for the tigers with clothes back on.
Love to all, Graham
