So it’s done. “Done” may be stretching the truth a little – “started” might be a better description. The Great Edinburgh Run (5th May this year) has my entry fee and I’ve set up a fundraising page on JustGiving. All I have to do now is go and do it. Easy, eh?
I’ve decided to raise funds for the Maggie’s Centres, which provide support for anyone affected by cancer. Two reasons for this. First, they do a fantastic job. Second, if I’ve got sponsors I will definitely do the run. Even if I walk it. No backing down. Lynne, I’ll see you at the start line!
If anyone from Ross High happens to be reading this, GP2 is doing the Junior Race on the Saturday so I’m sure you will feel duty bound to sponsor us. No pressure, but he’s in your class Mr Meldrum. And for everyone else reading – it’s all in a good cause, so go on. You know you can. Just click on that badge on the right.
The fund raising page may be the last rip in my veneer of anonymity but never mind. Most people probably know who I am by now anyway and the sky hasn’t fallen in. In fact, now I think about it, I might just put the blog link on the JustGiving site. Oh why not live dangerously?

No backing down. Training complete. See you there!
I can’t say the training’s complete – I’m working on the tapering up principle rather than tapering down – but I’ll definitely see you there.
Hi GPM – put me down for £10 towards your fund raising.
Give me a call when you need the money.
We’ll need to think of somewhere to meet..
Lynne, I’ll be in touch nearer the time. I’ve got your email address.
