    Hi everyone

    Please bear with me this might be a bit long winded. Lorraine my O/H sadly lost her mum to Cancer last month and in a moment of madness I agreed to run a marathon in aid of cancer research.

    Well instead of just coming on here and asking you lot for money I thought id make it a bit of fun while I try and raise some sponsorship.

    I spoke with a few traders on MHF and told them what I was doing and wondered if they could assist well I was amazed at the generosity of total strangers.

    So here is my plan below is a list of prize’s kindly donated by fellow Funsters and all you have to do to win one of these fabulous prize’s is sponsor me and also guess my time in the Marathon. To help you do this I started running about a year ago and have done a 10k in 51minutes a ½ marathon in 1.49.16 and my aim for the marathon is to finish it, id love to do it in 4hours but think 4.30 is more realistic.

    So go on make a donation to my just giving page and post your guess on here for a .chance to win, closest to my time gets first pick and so on until all prizes gone.

    What a brilliant idea--and well done you for undertaking the marathon. Your MIL sounds like she was a courageous lady.

    If this is where I guess, I'll go for 4 hours 37minutes, 30 seconds.

    Just a wee update on my Training as im on holiday in France at the moment i have only done 2 small but fastish runs since Friday hopefully get another in tomorrow and a long run at weekend depends what we are up to and where we are.

    Had a few small injuries so hopefully doing small runs will give me time to recover or maybe just getting old:Rofl1::Rofl1:
