I want to run and run and run

I have started to hit gym, and roads, again after my operation.

What is the goal?

The goal is to run a marathon.


Well there is a long list of reasons, but the main one is that I never thought I would be able to, because of the state of my joints.


I’m not mental; I’m giving myself 2 years. I would love to be able to say I’ll do one next year, but I need to make sure I will be able to walk afterwards and that means test my knees and ankles for a long sustained period.

Why am I writing this up?

This is my pact with you. If by 16th October 2014 I have not signed up to run a marathon, you can kick me in the shins and flick my ears.
