Oh no, not again…

Great North RunOh dear… it’s that time of year again.   Excuse me if I take a rest from blogging today.   Shortly I shall be heading into Newcastle-upon-Tyne to take my place on the start line of the Great North Run, billed as the largest half marathon in the world.   This has become a bit of an annual habit for me, and will in fact be my ninth on the trot.   It is probably the one I am least prepared for, however (I’ve had patellar tendonitis – in layman’s terms, a soreness above the knee –  which has somewhat hampered  any  preparations).   The most I have run recently is 5 miles – now I’m off to brace 13.1. Don’t expect any fast times!   If you’d like to sponsor me, that would be greatly appreciated. I’m running in aid of the Royal National Institute for the Blind and have a sponsorship page here. Thank you!
