My story

<p><strong>Post run update</strong>:</p> <p><em>I managed to complete the course in 1 hour, 59 mins and 21 seconds according to my official timing chip &ndash; so just scraping in at under 2 hours which I am very happy about.&nbsp; My position was 4370 in a field of around 9,000 runners &ndash; so just about into the top 50% - not too shabby for someone who couldn&rsquo;t run at all earlier this year.</em></p> <p><em>Thanks again to everyone for sponsoring me.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Having only just started running earlier this year, I will be running the Bristol Half Marathon on 11 Sep 2011!&nbsp; This is quite a big deal for me - after 30+ years of total couch potato behaviour, to run 13 miles is quite a challenge.</p> <p>I will be running for Oxfam - I'm sure everyone is aware of the work they do - to find out more, click on the link to the left.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Please donate if you can&nbsp; - and gift aid it!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>For added excitement - I will be having a sweepstake on my finishing time - prize to be decided, but I will be funding it myself so its not going to be big value - just a bit of fun.&nbsp; Entry is &pound;2 per time - you can enter as many times as you like.&nbsp; Its going to be a sweepstake so times pulled out of hat - no skill or prior knowledge of my current pace required!&nbsp; The winner will be the person who picks the time closest (under or over) to my actual finishing time (each time is in 15 second blocks).&nbsp; I appreciate that in the event, this may not be quite as simple as I hope, and I&rsquo;ve not quite figured out the precise details yet so if there is any confusion, the judge&rsquo;s (ie me) decision is final etc etc.&nbsp; Bear in mind that the prize is probably not going to be worth arguing about anyway &ndash; it&rsquo;s just a bit of fun!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you'd like to take part please get in touch - if you are likely to see me you can draw times in person - otherwise I can pick a time on your behalf - pay your entry via the&nbsp;virginmoneygiving page.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Wish me luck!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Mandy</p>
