I'm doing the Great North Run in a few weeks. The training hasn't been easy for me, I'm far from a natural runner and way too heavy to comfortably run any sort of distance.
I'm raising money for Starlight Children's Foundation which helps seriously ill kids in hospital have something to look forward to by granting them amazing wishes. Anyone with kids can identify with this. The website shows some amazing stories that are guaranteed to make you smile.
It is a bit random asking a bunch of strangers to sponsor me but I have been kicking around the forum for a while (since before the Great Hack) so not that much of a stranger!
Anyway, if you can spare a few quid that would be great, it is a really worthwhile cause.
Thanks a lot.
