I haven’t done a 10k run for years - not since the 1986 Run the World event - but I'm a regular 5k Parkrunner and love the buzz of running with others, so jumped at the idea of taking part in the Virgin Run in central London. Double the distance but double the fun!
And of course I'm raising money for Give Us Time, a charity that does a fantastic job helping service personnel take desperately needed holidays with their families. Taking time to re-connect, relax and re-charge the batteries is incredibly important to us all but especially so if you've experienced physical or psychological damage as as result of combat operations.
Your contribution will make a real difference, not only to service personnel but also to those closest to them, their partners/parents/children, so thank you in advance.
