It's not likely that I'll be chasing after legend Fauja Singh, after boiling up in my first ever marathon run. I completed the race in just over six hours, after a ding-dong battle with Little Miss Sunshine, Spiderman and a 10 pound note.
Running for SpecialEffect really gave me a boost, as did all the personal good luck wishes, sponsors, family, friends and the relentlessly rowdy and supportive crowd on the day.
My friend, Andy, who I ran alongside, even managed to get us interviewed live by the BBC at Tower Bridge, which was great for the charity. At the end I was just beaten by a Storm Trooper and Princess Leia. It felt good just to finish.
Thanks so much to all those who have sponsored. I'm very close to my target, so this is my last call to any who'd like to sponsor, or learn more about SpecialEffect, to pop over to: www.justgiving.com/kneecruncher. Normal service will resume shortly.
