Half Marathon? Walk in the park!
So yesterday was the big day – me and 15000+ other people were there to spend a lovely Sunday in the royal parks of london having a nice little 13-mile stroll..
The good news is that I finished the course, managing to cross the line in 2:26:05!
I had to wait until I got home to have my reward pie, I can tell you that it was delicious :o)
Thanks to everyone for your support and constant vigilance over my diet – although I’m not planning to EVER run that far again, I do intend to maintain a degree of fitness from now on
With your help (and RB’s matched fundraising) I’m close to raising £3k for Save the Children and Lymphoma Research once Gift Aid has been added. This is a massive amount and I’m really grateful – it certainly helped me to keep my focus when things started to get tough. If you have yet to donate but would like to there’s still time – just go to http://www.justgiving.com/john-griffin/
