So here goes …..
The London Marathon will take place on Sunday 26th April 2009 so we have 73 days to go. Neither Annie nor I have run a marathon before. In fact, before we started training for this event the furthest either of us had run was 6 miles.
We are in week 14 of our 24 week training programme. We have run 10 miles as our longest run and we've now done that for three successive Saturdays.
Since we started training I’ve lost 26 pounds and I aim to lose another 10 pounds before the big day.
We have been overwhelmed by the support we’ve had - from people all over the world - for our wonderful charity "Carers UK."
We've already had pledges of over £500 toward our target of £3000.

Annie has a Blog dedicated to our London Marathon efforts called Running for Carers where you can keep up to date with our training.
Please tell your friends and all suggestions/ideas for fundraising will, needless to say, be gratefully received!
