After some office banter with my younger colleagues, bravado and stupidity overtook sensibility resulting in me making the monumental decision to sign up for the Denbies Surrey Half Marathon.
Reality setting in, i now have to run 13 and a bit miles around Denbies Vineyard and surrounding Surrey Hills in September this year.
Will the knees hold up, the old football injuries come back to haunt me. These questions and more need to be answered but i am looking forward to the challenge and will give it my best shot.
My wife who is a top class runner in her own right, does not think i will be able to do it. She has already made plans to visit me in A and E post race !
I need to prove her wrong and in the process raise money for the organisation i work for, Transform Housing who provide vital support to vulnerable people in Surrey.
