I won’t be participating in this years Great North Run. However two friends of mine will be running for worthy charities in the coming weeks, so I would just like to add a few words of support, and even help them gain extra sponsorship in the process.
Formerly a victim of many office pranks (usually instigated by myself), Ed will be running the Great North Run on Sunday, October 1st, and is hoping to raise £500 for Simone’s Tribute Fund. This is the same charity I ran for earlier this year in Manchester, and raised £350 (again, a big thank-you to all those that supported me).

As October draws to a close, another friend of mine, whom I first met during my month in Australia a few years back, will be running the Dublin Marathon in aid of the homeless charity, Crisis. Having run only half-marathons myself, I have a lot of respect for a guy who can run 26 miles, before taking in a local museum or two.
You can sponsor Mike online too, at: http://www.justgiving.com/mikerobertson
Best of luck to both runners!
