Obligatory Begging Post

A couple of posts ago I stated my intention to enter my thirteenth half-marathon and (for once) be sponsored, with the proceeds going towards CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably.

So I've entered one. My thirteenth half will be Cardiff Half-Marathon, the place where I ran number one three years ago. It seemed such a fitting place to do it. Aside from the nostalgia value, the event is wonderful. The crowds are plentiful and supportive, the scenery is great, it's well-organised and the course is virtually flat. I'm looking forward to it.

Running has been my saviour. It took some time to figure it out, but getting an hour or so of running in every few days really has done wonders for my mental health and it only seems right to use that for the benefit of others.

And so we come to the crunch, the bit where I ask you if you'd be so good to sponsor me. I have two sponsorship pages, although I've subsequently found that if you use the Virgin link, more money goes to charity.

My JustGiving link is here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/donatetocalm
My Virgin Money Giving link is here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/calmdonation

Many thanks for taking the time to read this post - and if you can pledge a bit of sponsorship I'd be extremely grateful.
