After being fast friends since we were wee freshers at Leeds University (over a decade ago now...), Rachel and I have decided to seize the day (and our quickly fading youth) and take up the challenge of running the London Marathon together!
It's not going to be easy, but with the love, support and withheld cynicism of our friends and family - we reckon we can make it.
And it's not just the thrill of proving our physical and mental stamina that drives us. We've also set out to raise a whopping £2000 for Whizz-Kidz - an incredible charity working to transform the lives of disabled children in the UK by providing the equipment, support and life skills they need to reach their full potential.
So please, donate what you can, share our story, and follow what will no doubt be a smooth and hiccup-free journey to smashing a combined 52.4 miles...
Let the flow of blood, sweat and tears commence!
