Last Sunday I took part and completed my first half marathon, The 30th BUPA Great North Run as part of a team from TBWA\Manchester. Everyone did really well with their respective runs and as I type we have raised £1,765.00 for Henshaws, Society for Blind People. If you still want to donate, its not too late and every penny is really appreciated.
I managed to just sneak inside my target of sub 2 hours, with a time of 1 hour 58 minutes 09 seconds, finishing an overall postion of 10497 out of 54000 runners. So only any hour behind Haile Gebrselassie!
PS. Thanks to the lovely lady who gave me an ice pop at around the 11 mile mark, not sure I would have made it to the end without the sugar hit!
