My personal message:

So, it's about time I got off my butt and did this. Would rather do a 5K but apparently that's just for girls and "Real Men Do 10k!" or something.

Anyway, after much talk over the past couple of years, I'm biting the bullet and have started training for a 10k charity run in memory of my Dad who passed away far too early after a protracted battle with cancer.

In fact, by the time the run comes round, it will be almost four years since he died.

Also, more recently, my mum has now been diagnosed with a rare form of blood/bone marrow cancer. Thankfully it's treatable: a process she is going through now. To be honest, she probably felt left out and wanted some attention.

Thanks to the Trent for laying down the gauntlet and signing up before me ( Thanks, "mate" - now I have no excuse not to do it.

Apart from sponsoring me, it would be great to have your support on the day (friends and family who live in B'mth, obviously). If for the reassurance that if I do collapse midway, there'll be someone in the crowd who will point and laugh before then going off to fetch help.

Right, here's the science bit:

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Cancer Research UK gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

A massive thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far - it's really appreciated.
