I'm getting ready to send out my email request for sponsorship. Just like last year, I'm running to support Macmillan Cancer Relief. But this year, you get 3 races for the price of 1 - I'll be running the Liverpool Half Marathon a month today, the Reading Half about 3 weeks later and then the full London Marathon on 23rd April. Progress so far is pretty good. I'm getting a couple of runs in a week, which is more than I managed last week (but way down on what the training plans recommend). Today I covered more than 20km for the 3rd time in 6 weeks. My time, 2h 6m or so, is slower than I'm targetting, but I'm getting faster each time. I'd planned to run futher today but when I got to Tower Bridge (about 11km from home), I found that it was "open" (i.e. closed), so I turned round and ran home the same way. I should have seen it was open from a couple of km away but I guess I was so busy concentrating on the run, plus the book I was listening to, Ambler Warning, that I missed it. Here are the details: My Macmillan fund raising page is on JustGiving as before.
