According to the provisional timings I made it to the finish line in 2 hours, 19 minutes and 10 seconds – pretty nice for a first half marathon, I reckon. And so much the better to learn that you’ve now helped me raise more than £300 for Mind – with payday still to come!
Most of all, this is for you lot. Thank you all, so much, for all your support – whether you’ve made a donation, suggested a song to help me along, or wished me luck on the way to this day. I’ve never done so much as a fun run before now. I honestly could not have done this without you. Thank you.
While I’m still collecting up photos and things, if you’ve yet to do so, and you’d like to make a donation to my fundraising efforts for Mind, the link is here
Thank you, everyone!
Finally, I’d like to say a massive thank you to all the wonderful folks at Mind and Tyneside Mind for all their support and encouragement, as well as the organisers at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. Thank you, guys – you’re ruddy splendid!
