i am a serving member of the army and a keen stalker, always having thought after a long hill stalk that I ought to get really hill fit I took the plunge. I am running the Edinburgh marathon next Sunday in aid of the ABF (the soldiers charity) and the welfare fund for the royal regiment of Scotland.
Some if you will remember the sad news of a few weeks ago of three jocks killed in Afghanistan and a further 6 who are now home beginning the slow path to recovery from their injuries. These charities will help those directly impacted by this massive explosion and the devastating aftermath.
This is a humble plug for my justgiving site http://www.justgiving.com/teams/Alastair-Marathon The often used marathon option will be cheeky as I try and drag my 18 st frame around the course in as near to 4 hours as I can.
i would be hugely grateful for any sponsorship and thank you for reading! I hope everyone's buck cull is going well!
