Three days to go till the Great North Run
(but still plenty of time to donate you haven't already)
Thanks to the generosity of many of you, we are already well over halfway to our target of £1500 to purchase a defibrillator for the village. At the time of writing (Thursday morning) a fantastic £887.00 has been donated towards this worthwhile cause.
So - if you've already donated, than you so much for your support. If you haven't, there's still lots of time, so please go online at, or get in touch with either of us in person and they'll make sure any cash donations received are put through the website for you.

On the running front, the big day looms - the pasta's being prepared, the anti-chafing gel is being applied, and hopefully all the training will pay dividends on the day itself. On a recent 15km training run we misjudged the heat slightly, and set off without any water - somewhere outside Hambleton we had to knock on a random door somewhere outside Hambleton to beg for refreshment - fortunately the homeowner concerned took pity on us and we survived to the end of the run (although one of us looked slightly happier than the other).

To conclude, thank you all again - and if you haven't donated, please do. Otherwise the next email will contain pictures of those of Giles' toenails which are still attached to his feet. It's fair to say they're taking a bit of a pounding!

Giles and Glen
