I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone for sponsoring me to run the London Marathon this year. 

Fighting off a week of flu, I completed it in 5 hours 14mins – 17 minutes faster than last year, though not quite under the five hours I'd been hoping for

As you know I ran for two great charities and, including nearly £68,000 we raised last year, we have now broken the £100,000 barrier. You can see last year's fundraising at www.justgiving.com/teams/EdBalls

After the trauma and tragedy of the Boston marathon bombing, the runners and citizens of London 2013 responded just perfectly this weekend. It was a great honour to be part of it.

All of the brilliant support I have received kept me going on the day. So once again, thank you for your support – and if you haven’t donated yet you can still contribute by clicking donate below.
