Don't ask me why I agreed to do this. It was late … I was tired … it just happened. The important thing is that I have agreed to run the New York Marathon this November in aid of Tenovus, a charity supporting education and research into cancer.
I'm not alone though, good lord no: I am being joined in this enterprise by my brother Ian and two other friends at Cardiff University. Over the next few months, I will be getting myself in training and building up to the marathon on November 5th and this blog will move along with that.
I've run three half–marathons and any number of smaller distances but never anything approaching 26.1 miles so this might get a little tricky. Whatever happens, I'll keep you updated and I'd love to get your input/encouragement/abusive feedback.
Oh yeah, and if any of you supremely generous people fancy donating a little bit to the cause, please follow the link above.
Thanks very much, see ya
