Well folks, I managed it without embarrasing myself (much)

On Sunday I completed the Great North Run with a few workmates in aid of the TOMA fund, a childrens cancer charity based in the north east providing care for kids affected by childhood cancer and support for their families.

If anybody would like to donate then it would be very much appreciated, our company has agreed to double whatever we raise so we're trying extra hard!

Didn't do too badly, poor preparation and barely any training meant expectations were low. Goal was to finish but I managed a respectable 2:35!

How did you get on?

Aye, pleased but disappointed at the same time. If I had put the effort in and actually trained properly I could have done a 1:45-2:00 time.
