Finished the 10k on Sunday

I did it ,all the way ,through the hard paved streets of London in my CLLSA T shirt with the sound of faster runners feet pounding in my ears. So the first one home did it in 15 minutes and I took almost 2 hours - but for me I was able to read the time as I passed Big Ben, see the Thames under Westminster Bridge and not have sweat stinging my eyes. There was a wee bit of jogging but mostly brisk walking.

As I sit here with my feet in a nice bowl of hot salty water I contemplate on just how generous all you great and supportive people have been.

With a fair bit of help from many of you , especially the kind sole who donated the last £15 to get me to a thousand, I have now raised more than a £1,000 having received another donation from some one called Anonymous. Anonymous is so generous and made so many donations - but I don't know who he/she is , but thank you Mr, or Mrs Anonymous for your exceeding generosity.

A huge thank you from me for supporting me , and another even bigger thank you for adding funds to the CLLSA pot.

Shall I do it again next year, ummm I hope so.

Oh and just in case you forgot to donate the Just Giving page is still open all ways have been a bit cheeky !! justgiving.com/Derek-McGlas...

Thank you .

Willie
