42 Km for Cancer

Well, here goes. I am officially announcing my New Years pledge over this blog.

My plan is to run the Alaska Midnight Marathon in Anchorage on June 17th.

And I plan to do it in under four hours (we’ll see).

My girlfriend is going to run the half marathon on the same day.

We plan to raise as much money as possible for leukaemia research in the process.

So if any of you out there are interested in making a pledge for a worthy cause over our weary knees, we’d be delighted.

The most I’ve ever run before is about 20 km, and that was a long while ago, and Maria, well, she is only just making the conversion from being a hardcore smoker to fantastic athlete.

Wish us luck!
