I hope this isn't against the rules, if it is then mods take me out.

I am running the London marathon next year to raise money for the above charity. If anyone wants to donate please do so anonymously.



Any small donation will be massively appreciated.

Thank you.

David - As you have so far raised the sum of £0.00 I thought I should start the ball rolling!

Will keep an eye on this and make a bigger donation nearer the time.

I have been blessed with healthy kids and a health grandson.

I know I am lucky!

Great cause and good luck KC....

We have Villa at home that weekend which will probably be changed for tv....for your sake I hope it's a Friday or Saturday.

Either way I will arrange a meet for that weekend knowing that you can't make it....

Cheers Chris [cool]

Don't give me that bollox T.C. You love me.


You have got a big heart BB and I am sincerely grateful.

Thank you mate.

Not heart KC it is conscience!

My cousin passed away at 8 with Leukemia, just after her first Holy Communion. It has lived with me since. Really touching Ceremony. I think I was 12 at the time but my Uncle and Aunt are good people and I could not understand why my God could hurt them so much. As I said, I will keep an eye on your target but it will be reached. Even if I do it by myself.

Just make sure you finish so I can give you that bottle of water you will richly deserve!

You are in my neck of the woods guy!

xxxx I give eveyone kisses! Sign of affection nothing more! Beware the BB Bear hug! It is for real men!

That is hard core Bull. You are mental. Maximum respect.

Why are you putting yourself through that kind of punishment? Are you a seasoned runner ?

I'm up to 15 miles as of yesterday and my legs were tightening up a bit at the finish.

They say the marathon starts after 20 miles so I have a way to go.

The good thing is that around our way it is all hills and dales so that will prepare me well for the flat in London.

Far from a seasoned runner KC. I've 5 marathons done now (3:52 is my best time) so I just wanted to try something different.
I just turned 50 (last October) and when I was younger a marathon was always on the preverbal "bucket list", so a few days before I turned 45 I completed the Dublin city marathon and loved it in all honesty, the buzz off the crowd, the finishing stretch i'll never forget. I know things look tough now and doubts will creep in but if you follow and stick to your training plan I've no doubt you WILL FINISH IT.

Hydration and diet are key KC especially 6-8 weeks from race day. Plenty of water 24 hours before the race.

There are two important lines to remember when running a marathon

THE START LINE
&
THE FINISHING LINE

Anyone that crosses both deserve huge kudos in my book.

Best of luck mate, keep us posted on your progress

3.52 isn't bad for an old timer! (I was 51 in January)

Our lass did the London marathon last year and like you, the crowds and the occasion left an impression on me.

Thanks mate [smile]

One of the best things I have ever done shag.

The news portrays division amongst people but on occasions like that, at grass roots level, it is total solidarity.
