Quick update. We did it! Glynn and I got round, singing, throwing Elvis shapes and 'thanking people very much' for their applause and support all the way round. Despite that, and stopping for photos regularly, we still managed to do it in 2hrs 5mins.
We ran the Reading Half Marathon, dressed as the King himself, Mr Elvis Presley: cape, quiff, sunglasses, rhinestones and all!
It was certainly silly, and sufficiently arduous for me to feel happy asking you to part with a little of your hard-earned cash!

I chose to raise money for my favourite charity, the World Land Trust, who do splendid work saving rainforest and other wilderness habitats round the globe in the form of permanent reserves. Since its foundation in 1989, and with Sir David Attenborough as patron, the WLT has helped to protect over 500,000 acres of the world’s wild places: of utmost importance in protecting us all from the risks and damage of climate change.
