Blog is on its way regarding the Marathon Des Sables 2010. However, thought I’d give a quick update; as I have been a bit quiet on the blog front. It was not intentional but there has been alot going on.
Rich and I have set up a facebook page 10 Million Metres
The page will give updated info throughout each day; such as
Sponsors, what’s on..and more. It’s also a good forum for you to have more interaction with Rich and me. So please have a look and if interested, sign up!
On the race front, Rich is gearing up for the Grand Union, a 145 mile, single stage race from Birmingham to London. I have a reserve place on the waitlist for this one and I really hope I get in. Will keep you posted.
Last weekend I ran just under 40 miles from the finish of the London Marathon towards Swindon with Mike Buss. I had to stop halfway as that was home, and Mike finished the final 40 miles. He is a total hero and deserves your support. Look him up on facebook.
Training has started for the London Tri and I have, just this morning, signed up for the Henley Sprint Triathlon. Should be a good indicator of my progress. However, swimming is the tough one. I can swim fine but improving my shite technique is going to be challenging.
Thanks are due this blog. Orca, Buff and Polaroid have shown massive support for what Rich and I are trying to achieve. Thank you for your continued support guys!! Please check out their sites. Links are in the Sponsors page.
Lastly, looking at a nasty 135 mile single stage race in Europe and progressing with the trans Europe run plans. So watch this space!!
More to come but now going out for a run. Keep moving…
