Me running

Running in the rain

As you may have noticed, I’ve been publicising my Great North Run fundraising on social networking sites, Twitter and Facebook. It’s been a great way to connect with fellow runners and wish them luck too.

JustGiving has been a very convenient way for me to collect money on behalf of Sands, so I was thrilled when they contacted me to ask me to guest post on their blog.

Like so many aspects of my running and training, I had help with this too. I gatecrashed Emma’s regular fashion photoshoot, dragged her and photographer Pete across some rather muddy fields in the rain and then ran about near some trees, all in the name of publicity. Well, it is for a good cause.

I’m really pleased with the pictures, especially given the conditions and the time constraints and I hope that getting a wider audience for my fundraising and running story may just inspire someone else to take on a challenge.

  1. You’re very welcome to gatecrash any of my shoots. It was fun and nice to see a new bit of scenery (even if it was a bit damp).

    Pete did a great job on the photos.
