So it looks like I'm taking a crack at the Windermere Marathon. 

It's not the biggest distance challenge I've taken on, but it'll be the only one I've tried to run.

The South Lakes is an area that holds a lot of happy memories for me. So I want to take this opportunity to raise some cash for Cruse Bereavement Cumbria honour of my old friend Andy.

Cruse Bereavement Cumbria's services are delivered entirely by volunteers and they rely on donations for funding. They were there to support Andy's family. Please help me to say thank you to them.
