TST--Yes, 60 years ago when TB was in his late twenties he would surely have beaten us all.
PPP--Any luck with an online donation site yet?
PPP-it looks like you can set up a web page with either virginmoneygiving or with justgiving BUT they either want money up front for setting it up or deductions are made at 2% plus card fees, but with Gift Aid (Govt. gives 28p in the pound,from private donations, it's still worth it).
I'm still working on the IT problem, so i haven't got time to reply to TST or GBM, but i'm doing a 30 miler tomorrow if you both want to join me, that's if you could keep up
this should cheer us all up:
PPP - try googling MyDonate - it's a site set up through BT for charity fundraising and it's totally fee-free even for the charities themselves. So it maximises the donations.
I raised money last year running VLM using MyDonate - it worked a treat!
Plod- You could start up some sort of 'personal challenge' thing on here which would raise money (and improve the thread) As you said, you doing a couple of marathons is neither here nor there- you will have to set a challenging target- perhaps combined time for them will be sub 5*. Or sub 6:00 but you have to stop off at a hairdressers en route
For example, me and Daz are 'racing' each other in a Half next weekend and we could have a 'loser gives Plod £x' agreement which might make me actually put a bit of effort in for a change
Good luck to this weekend's racers!
Plod- That should have said sub 5 with 2 asterisks after (as I am not sure what you are capable of), I am not suggesting you do 2 NI PB type efforts back-to-back
plod - i like jmc's idea of a haircut challenge. NI used to have a tail and now it has gone look how fast he goes. How about £5 per inch lost, a buzz cut could cost me but then what chance you letting the nixon twins giving you fashion ideas. Hope this makes sense, been up all night.
M has his knee operation yesterday am and all went well. It was an arthroscopic meniscectomy with debridement. Not sure how much cartilage they had to chop off - he will find out when he goes back to see surgeon next month.
SW - great news about M's surgery - give him my best. He was running pretty well before the repair...there will be no stopping him once he is back in the saddle.
Just off to the Comedy Club for the open mike session following HL comments.
Piss up on Mar 6th at our house for my birthday bash, everyone invited. Only I wont be there as Im at the Quo gig at the Apollo. (thats not a joke by the way)
Its the way I tell em!
