    Dear All f-chatters,

    I am running my first marathon on April 18th (even sacrificing going to the Spring Ball and the first track day because of it !) and I am humbly looking for sponsors.

    In order to get a place for the marathon, runners have to run for a charity. I have chosen a charity called Whizz Kidz as it perfectly matches my sentiments. It buys "cars" for disabled kids to give them mobility. Clearly I love cars and if I was in that sitaution then that's what I would want. Each car costs on average £3300.

    I have already raised a little over that amount from my close friends but my target is $5,000. If you would like to help please visit https://www.bmycharity.com/V2/philipsfirstmarathon . I set up this site through my charity so that donations can be given easyly from a wider set of people. You will also find my personlised letter to all my sponsors.

    I would also like to highlight that if you choose donate, my employer will double your money. If you also tick the "gift aid" tab the charity gets 28% extra. The net effect is that for each pound you put in the kids get £2.56 !

    I am humbly appreciative of any contibutions you can make.

    Philip

    P.S. The Charity's address is http://www.whizz-kidz.org.uk

    It didn't like my card details, so I've put a pledge in, we'll sort something out :).

    Good luck!

    Daz,

    many thanks for you support :)

    I really don't know how I will feel at the finish but I'm sure it will be good but painful. I did 24 miles last Sat and from mile 19 I didn't just hit the "wall" i absolutely slammed on it. Those last five miles were just horendous. I hope it won't be that bad in the event. I'm off to do the same thing this Sat so I can hopefully get my body more use to it ... I better be back for qualifying though !

    Cheers

    Philip
