In a little over 24 hours, I’ll be busy limbering up for the start of this year’s Royal Park’s Foundation half-marathon. Of the few halfie’s I’ve done, it’s definitely my favourite. Despite the crowds and some of the tricky narrow corners, it’s a scenic and relatively flat run, passing some of the most beautiful sights in London.
Once again, I’m running to raise money for Epilepsy Action. As of writing, I’m incredibly close to reaching my fundraising target. You can push me over the line using either of the following methods:
1 – Visit my fund-raising page and donate an amount of your choice.
2 – Use your mobile phone and text me a £1 donation by sending the following message: “DRDK76 £1” to 70070
This year you can, thanks to the magic of the iTunes app store, track my progress live as I run. Download the Royal Parks Foundation half-marathon app and enter my race number (8529) to see how I’m doing.
I’m aiming to beat my personal best and come in at 1:45 or thereabouts. My last training run was a disaster, so let’s hope my friend Marcel was right when he pointed out it’s better to have a terrible rehearsal and excellent performance.
Today, I get to enjoy no running and some carb-loading to fuel my exertions tomorrow.
