Well, I have been running 10km runs for a few years now and 6.2 miles is as far as I have every ran. I decided this year to see if I could gain a place in London Marathon 2017 So I applied for a ballot place, this is where you fill out your details and hope to get a place by lucky dip. I also put my name down to run for Children With Cancer UK and I was successful in gaining a place.
Oh my word, it is now sinking in that I have to train to run 26.2 miles and I have pledged to raise £1500 for this great charity. So I now have my fund-raising kit of donation boxes, posters and a t-shirt. So if you can help me raise funds for Children with Cancer UK, please click on http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JAMIEWARDFURNITURE
I will offering a number of events over the next 6 months, starting with shaving my head on 8th November.
