And suddenly this happened...

So, picture me sat at my laptop computer one evening in May 2015, reminiscing over various aspects of my life whilst thinking about the fact I shall be hitting 50 years old in 2016 and contemplating what I have actually achieved during my lifetime.

I started to think what a memorable achievement it would be if someone my age, with my dodgy knees, could complete the London Marathon. I also thought what a wonderful opportinity it would be to raise raising money for a charity in the process and it did not take me too long to realise that the charity should be Mind. So, that very evening, my application was submitted... this is my story and my blog
