A fund raising appeal

This for readers from the UK. Heck. From anywhere:

Race for Life

Every summer, the women of Britain get the bug - the bug to "Race for Life". This is a 5k race run (or walked, in my instance!) to raise money for Cancer Research UK. I have been wanting to do this for years and decided to go for it this year. So on Sunday, 14 June, I shall be racing for life in Basildon, Essex.

I foolishly thought this will spur me to get off my arse and train properly. Unfortunately, despite the best wills in the world, it didn't quite turn out that way! No excuses. My race partner and I have decided we are just going to wing it. (May be we'll glug Red Bull prior to the start!) As I walk that distance (it is 1.5 miles to P's school) everyday, I am not worried but my only desire was to jog it. Oh well.

So far, the Spouse has put up half of my pledged amount of £50. Can I entreat you, my loving reader, to shell out a £1 for this cause? Needless to say, it is for a good cause.
