Naughty FatBloke !!!

Well gotta come clean here folks following our holiday to Aust/NZ and Christmas etc. Fatbloke has put on a few pounds but alas all is not lost I have been training again since January and I will be running the Brentwood Half Marathon ( my favourite race ) again this year on Sunday 18th March. I really enjoyed it last year as it was part of my London Marathon Training but this year its going to be tough tough tough and its my own fault.

I will be raising funds for the Brain Tumour Charity again and more specifically for the Judy D’cruz fund that stands at £24,324.83. Lets see if we can get a few more £’s in the pot. If you would like to donate it would be appreciated. Just click here . Here is a picture from last years race

Thank You from the Fat Bloke

I have to say yesterday was one of the greatest achievements / events of my life. It was so hard and although my legs are hurting my heart is bursting with pride.  I need to say thank you to ALL the people who have supported me in so many ways.  Mervyn Phillips a veteran of 18 London Marathons and 60 in all took me under his wing but I  got so much advice from so many people who wanted to be sure I was OK on start day. All those who waved at me during those long training runs, those that supported me on the day by turning out but also by following me on-line I could feel the e-love !!. Special thanks to Judy for encouraging and putting up with me over these last few months. It couldn’t have been easy I moaned a lot and fretted a lot but at the end of the day I had full respect for the challenge I was undertaking.

But lets not forget the reason for all this was to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity so thank you to all those who have donated. Its not too late to donate so if you have been following my story please donate as I try to reach the £10k mark. I feel sure I can get there so any amount however small would be gratefully received. I have attached below some photos from the day.  I hope you enjoy them. Thanks again from Judy and Myself as well as all the people from The Brain Tumour Charity.

Fat Bloke feeling emotional

My sister just popped around and gave me my Dads chain to run with. I am not religious in any way but I will proudly wear this tomorrow and amongst all the other reasons I am running for tomorrow I will also remember my Dad. I know if he was around he would be telling me I was mad doing this but I know he would also be very proud !!!
