Completed the Richmond Half Marathon today and thanks to the generosity of family, friends and strangers alike, raised £491.50 for the mental health charity Mind. Endurance running can teach a lot to a writer about perseverance, and brushing yourself off after a knock.
Running also provides time to think and work through stories.. and, as it turns out, it also lets you help a good cause. It’s win win really. Hence the medal…
