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

TB - thaks for that info. You are a gent. I will look into those options.

GBM - not yet. I will post a link if and when. Cheers

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

ES - you must be one of the most deluded people on this thread. After watching you lumber round the Schools XC course this morning I'm amazed you can even contemplate a 10k! What's wrong with Trafford10k, too competitive for you?

Mort - some great ideas and good to see you posting

Thanks for all the suggestions but ll of those fund raising sites are for registered charities. I want to collect money for the family. So it looks impossible to do it on line.

So if anyone wants to donate please pm or email me with an amount. I will keep a tally and collect from SHAC?

I am going to do it through the school l think. So any chequed can be payable to Tithe Barn school.

Mort - i plan to do vlm flat out anf then attempt a jonahesq sub 3 at mcr. So sub 6. But not going to compromise my vlm effort.

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.

Another 20 miler done today cheers RC and FOAR
PPP My plan is to do Boston and Manchester sub 3 so if you are planning on 2.55 ish for M/c we could help each other out.
09/02/2013 at 17:43
J8 - i cannot think of anyone better qualified to pace it. That sounds good to me.Cheers!
09/02/2013 at 19:37
J8, foar, - Thanks again for this mornings run. Great to get another good sesson in the bank.

PPP, would be very happy to give to your touching cause.

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.

Great walk round Skiddaw today- zero visibilityand freezing! Made the post walk hot chocolate even more tasty!
10/02/2013 at 20:11
