Many people think they can do it. Around 100,000 apply each year. 50 odd thousand are given places, and 45 or so thousand actually finish. It is now the worlds biggest annual fund raising event.
Well I’m hoping to raise a littleÂ bit, and as for times, well Â I’m just hoping to run walk or even crawl my way to the finish line!
If you see this vest worn by a chap who looks like he really shouldn’t be doing this type of thing anymore – do say hello. I’m just hoping I won’t be needing the excellent services of the men and women who I’m doing the marathon for!
I believe the Lib Dem Mayoral candidate will be doing the run too (undoubtedly quicker than me). I wonder if he will be delivering any leaflets as he passes through aÂ London borough or two?
Lets just hope this isn’t my last blog post for a while…. (note to wife….. get that deep heat in now).
PS – For those of you who like a bit of interactivity… I intend on twittering away through the marathon – so check out the widget at the top of the right hand column from Sunday morning.
