    Running the London Marathon for Londonís Air Ambulance

    Hi All,
    I have been training for the 2019 London Marathon since mid January and decided once I was happy I would be able to complete it (ie this week as I have reached the 20 mile distance mark last w/end and have 22 miles next Mon) that I would set about raising a few quid for London’s Air Ambulance.

    It’s quite a big deal for me as it’s in my mind, all about being as good as I can get post stroke in mid 2017 whilst raising a few bob for a good cause. If I can beat my 2016 time of 4:57 I will be super chuffed.

    If anyone fancies popping a few bob towards my target, here’s my Justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/Stuart-Wh...term=WYWmMVQMk

    Thanks very much

    No beer needed.

    My Ma had a stroke at 52 so I know how tough that is.

    My sister in law is a London Ambulance Service first responder so I know how valuable the air ambulance is.

    And frankly the thought of a big fella like you running 26 miles is a huge laugh.

    Phew! So today was the last of the really long training runs (20 miles) and I was pretty pooped to be honest.
    Its just a half marathon next weekend and a 8 miler the week after that, with various short plods on the days in between before the big day.

    Here’s what a 20 mile plod looks like. Looks a long way, and felt it. Time for some good stodgy food and a beer

    Could you not have taken the opportunity to draw a big cock or something?

    Getting closer to the marathon itself now

    Today’s morning activity involved a half marathon race, so it literally is a few minor mid week runs and a 8 miler next weekend with a pretty chilled last week in the run up.

    Thanks very much to Belgium Beemer, Bowser & Sparkplug who bought a couple of things from me and made the payment via my sponsorship page

    Well the big day is nearly here, number and charity collected earlier today and a quick stop off for the obligatory pre run charity photo.

    Def not the most flattering pic

    Currently my sponsorship total is £900, so a massive thanks to everyone that has kindly sponsored me from UKGSER

    If I donít make it, my boots are size 11

    Cheers mate,

    Just by way of update.
    Tomorrow is the big day so a short note to say thanks very much to members of Ukgser who have contributed along with friends, family and work colleagues towards my fundraising for Londonís Air Ambulance. To say Iím blown away by the total is a understatement.
