Event: Flora London Marathon 2009, on 26 April 2009
We fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND


Hi everyone,

Yes, I'm gonna run the London Marathon. Yes, I'm serious. Yes, I'm sober, so please read on.

Those of you who know me know that I am not/have never been and most likely never will be a runner. To be completely honest, I don't like running very much. OK, so why am I doing this? I'd like to tell you that the person I'm doing this for is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met, but he'd kill me if I said that (which might diminish the chance of me ever crossing that finish line), so I won't even go there. Only that much: MND is gonna kill him and every other sufferer as long as there's no cure. If that's not a good reason for running a marathon, what is?

If you don't know what MND actually is, you might want to check out this link:

UPDATE: Yes, I did it. Yes, I finished.

Thanks everyone for your support. You are incredible, and I'm forever grateful.
