The Running Man: Update

So, another milestone has been completed on my Marathon adventure, and the 26 miles I have to run in April doesn't seem quite as intimidating as it originally did (OK, maybe it does). Today I completed a half-marathon in Brighton, running 13 miles in around two and a half hours (we'll get our official times later in the week), and doing it in weather conditions that were utterly horrendous. The wind and rain did not let up from first minute to last, and running along the Brighton seafront is probably the last thing you'd want to do on such a day. Still, I did it, and I'm now sitting here with a sense of accomplishment that's helping to ease the various aching parts of my body.

There's still a long way to go, and I'd really appreciate it if you could lend your support by donating some money to a very good cause here.

Many thanks.
