Story

As many of you might know, I am officially one of the laziest people alive. I'm taking the confident approach, that aside from never having run further than 6 miles in my life (cross country at school when I was 15), I am going to take this beast down, horns and everything......

In case you were wondering, I am 'aiming' for a solid time of 3 hrs 30 min. I can hear you from here shouting... "HA, good one James, that's complete baloney, you'll never manage that"...... To the unbelievers I would say, "If a short person can put on high heels, sneak onto a rollercoaster, and have a good time, then I can do this. Although maybe aim for a more realistic target of under 4 hrs".... Attainable.

As a side note, I have every intention of letting the 'Wally' legacy live on, and so will be running the marathon dressed as your beloved (albeit well hidden) hero......

Anyways, I would be forever grateful if you fancied donating an ickle teeny amount towards the cause. I promise that I will post photo's of my epic finish (trust me, the finish will be beyond monumental). Plus, added bonus, the person standing at the finish line with a pint of budweiser will get a nice big sweaty hug.....
