Story

Most people who know me know that running isn't my strong point. However this year I decided to do something for charity, something I have never done before, and something that not everybody has done, or will do.

The Birmingham half marathon jumped out at me. Firstly, because it's the furthest I will probably ever run in my life, and secondly because it is actually on my 26th birthday. So instead of being down the pub, where I should be on my birthday, I will be puffing and panting my way around Birmingham.

In doing this I'm hoping to raise money for the Royal British Legion, who provide for serving and ex-service men and women. They lose a lot of support to Help for Heroes, but provide a lot to the people who need it the most.

However much you can spare would be greatly appreciated, be it 50p or £50.

Thank you.
