Back in March 2012 I was kidding myself that I could still play five a side football with my colleagues at Berkeley PR, and in the process, managed to fracture my leg and rupture my cruciate ligament.
I subsequently spent far too many months sat on my backside putting on weight and generally feeling sluggish. At work I always tell people that I like a target. So sticking to this, I decided to sign up for the marathon. What a fool!
In April 2013 I will be running the 26 mile London Marathon for my chosen charity, Asthma UK. As an asthma sufferer myself, this is not only my biggest personal challenge yet, but also a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for an incredibly worthwhile charity.
My goal is to finish in one piece. I get a stitch driving 26 miles so this isn’t just a challenge, it is massive……but I am a strong willed so and so and will give everything to not let you down.
To help achieve my target quicker, for £200 I wanted to offer businesses (even other PR agencies) the chance to get your logo on my lovely green asthma UK running vest, a link from this PR blog (just listed as one of the top ten in the country) to your site promoting whatever you want me to, links and shout outs every month on Facebook and Twitter and a lot of gratitude.
That said, any donation or message of support will be gratefully received.

Asthma UK is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the 5.4 million people in the UK whose lives are affected by asthma.

It is little known fact that a shocking three people a day die from asthma.
