[lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt]Well, the profile picture looks like I'm just hanging out but I'm drinking water at the finish line.  I did it - thanks for your [b]incredible [/b]support!  [/p][lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt][lt]br /[gt]Mo Farrah's record is safe.  Very safe.  I came 171st in a race in which 174 finished. But I recorded a personal best - not hard when you've never done one before.  It was a humbling, exhausting, and exhilarating experience.   [/p][lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt]You can read the local report here [url=http://www.burnham-on-sea.com/news/2014/half-marathon-photos-05-10-14.php]http://www.burnham-on-sea.com/news/2014/half-marathon-photos-05-10-14.php[/url]     [/p][lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt]My rather rambling thoughts are here  [url=http://amiddleagedmanblogs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/the-loneliness-of-long-distance-runner.html]http://amiddleagedmanblogs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/the-loneliness-of-long-distance-runner.html[/url][/p][lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt][span=font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px;]Thank you so much for your support.  At my most optimistic I was hoping to be running for £100 a mile.  In the end, with offline fund raising, the total was £1627.50.  I had such amazing support, [b]thank you[/b].[/span][/p][lt]p style="font-family: HelveticaNeue, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: transparent;"[gt]Steve[/p] [p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]My friend Mark Stanton died last year after suffering Motor Nuerone Disease and I want to attempt my first (and in all likelihood, only) half marathon to raise money for a charity that he was passionate about.  Mark worked for MAF and was really committed to their work, so much so that he continued to work for them until a fortnight before he died.  [/p][p]You know that I am far from being a natural athlete but I am determined to plod round the Burnham on Sea Half Marathon in Mark's memory and to raise money for a terrific cause.  [/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. [/p][p]I'm really grateful for your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
