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…
Come support me tomorrow, Sept. 6th as I run a half-marathon in Kew Gardens from 09:30, raising money for the mental health charity ‘Mind’. Generous souls amongst you have ensured that I’ve raised over £400 raised for the charity. Nonetheless, ‘Mind’ would certainly benefit from more support, so please feel free to keep on giving, up until I cross that finishing line. There’s bound to be a party atmosphere, so come on down if you’re in London!
