Buddy, can you spare a dime?
Well, actually a fiver. I'm running my first marathon this year, and what with the old hip, general age and fondness for beer and pie, I figure this may be the only one I do. So I thought I'd put out a request for sponsorship, which I don't usually do. I'm raising money for Velindre Cancer Centre, which is where my wife had her treatment a couple of years ago. It was a very well run, friendly place that attempted to remove as much stress as they could do from a rather gruelling process.
The marathon I'm attempting is the Great Welsh Marathon on April 10th. I would like to say I'll be tweeting and audiobooing all the way round, but I think finishing alive is a sufficient goal at the moment.
So, last time I'll ask for money, I promise, but if you've got anything down the back of the sofa, here is the obligatory Just-Giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/Martin-Weller
