My story

[p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]WHY WHY WHY DID I SIGN UP FOR THIS?!?!?!?[/span][/b][/p][p]A question I have asked myself everyday since I agreed to take on this challenge.  100 mile ([i]yes 100 miles[/i]!!!) over very hilly cross country terrain in only 4 days - thats a marathon every day for 4 days - a marathon a day - for 4 days!!!  How a middle aged, father of 2 energetic sprogs, fighting a losing battle with the scales and suffering from dodgy knees is going to run/walk the 100 miles is beyond me! [span=color: #ff0000;]HELP!![/span][/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]THE ANSWER - FOR CHARITY![/span][/b][/p][p][span=color: #000000;]The event, being organised by my company, is raising money for three worthy charities, including MacMilllan which is a special charity to close friends of mine.  The training, the hours pounding the streets and no doubt the pain I will be inflicting on my body over the four days will be worth it knowing the importance of every penny I, and my colleagues, raise to help support these charities.  [/span][/p][p][span=color: #000000;][b][lt]span style="color: #0000ff;"[gt]WHAT IS THE SOUTH DOWNS WAY[/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][/p][p]The South Downs ways is a 100 miles (160 Km) long National Trail that follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs ([i]google it to appreciate the hills!![/i]).  My colleagues and I are attempting to conquer the trail with a group of us running over 4 days, a group biking/walking over 3 days and some joining on the last day for the last leg (a mere marathon!).  [/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;] SPONSORSHIP[/span][/b][/p][p]If you would like to sponsor me as I will be running([i]the plan[/i]) /walking ([i]most likely after day 1[/i]) /limping ([i]again highly likely after day 2[/i]) /crawling ([i]I hope not but possible for day 4[/i]) the 100 miles then any donation would be gratefully appreciated. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
