My name is Jamie Flanagan. This year I have ran in the Rome marathon and will be running in the Dundee and Berlin Marathon's (as well as the Speyside way Ultra-Marathon and other half marathons), raising money for Vasculitis UK. I am a Wegener's Granulomatosis patient and am looking forward to raising money and awareness to help beat this disease. There is a big announcement for 2013 in this blog, so keep reading! You can read more about me at my Just giving page's below:
The page below is for my 2013 160 mile Sahara Ultra-Marathon for the Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation
In the last few weeks I have experienced many miles... long, short, painful and pleasing. Some on my feet, some in my car. All ticking the right box so far! Oh my, I'm a poet and I don't know it! I wish I could speak in rhyme all the time!
I met Tony Audenshaw... really nice guy,
We had a wee drink, In a pub, it was dry.
We posed for some photos, out on the trail,
we even even agreed to talk by email.
Tony ran Manchester the very next day,
He ran very quick, I do have to say!
It was miserably cold, all through the race.
but Tony was on form and kept up good pace.
I ran over 26.2 miles twice in the last week.
Thankfully I washed, or I really would reek!
I lost a few toenails, big ones and all.
I hope just to keep one, or else I might fall.
I moved to the capital, land of Salt and Sauce,
Been out on the hills, It's covered in moss.
Good for the training not to get in a rut,
I'd better be careful not to slip right up.
I've never been a fan of Edinburgh City,
In fact if I'm honest, I thought it was s#itty.
I met someone sexy on last Friday night,
I just changed my opinion to one of delight!
I bid you farewell, I need to go drinking.
But before I go, I have just been thinking...
You people amaze me with your kind donations,
I may even thank you with silly flirtations!
I promise, no rhyming in the next edition!!! Will do a proper blog soon.
