On 11th October I will be attempting the Royal Parks Half Marathon in order to raise as much money as possible for 2 very worthwhile causes - I have seen first-hand the fantastic work that Save the Children do and although this event is going to be an enormous personal challenge (seriously!) it will be worth it if it means more children will benefit.

I have just 9 weeks to turn myself into some kind of athlete and your donations will certainly help to keep my motivation up. Thanks in advance for anything you can give, I really appreciate your kind support


I have another page set up to raise funds for the Lymphoma Research Trust - click here for info

Have been back in training again this week after damaging both my knees - I guess the sudden burst of activity was too much for them! The rest & anti-inflammatories seem to have done some good though and I'm continuing to make some progress. The strict diet regime has also started to pay dividends with a bit of lost weight (3.5kg in last month) but salad every day is killing me!

Looking forward to a nice pie with chips and gravy after the race...


I'll be doing my best to keep up with Ian (Hutch) Hutchinson - you can visit his page here
