But, just this once (and maybe for a reminder post next week), this blogger is indulging in a bit of self-promotion. I'm running a half-marathon in two weeks time, to raise money for SSE bursaries (giving social entrepreneurs who wouldn't normally get the chance to get supported on the programme). Along with my colleague Emma Mortoo, I will be running the Royal Parks Half-Marathon in sunny London town.
My training, like Rocky, has mostly involved running up the steps of Chiswick Town Hall (marginally fewer steps than the real thing), which seems adequate preparation for me. This is my excuse when Emma, whose stride length is about half mine, disappears into the distance from my wheezing frame.
Anyway, if you can, we'd love your support. You can support us here.Thanks in advance.
