Mark's massive mid life crisis
The idea popped into my head in the recovery room after a knee operation in 2015. Catherine thought it was a good idea too.
Now it's a couple of days away.
If you think it's a good idea too you might want to donate.
Any donation will be greatly appreciated by poorly people far away who may not have any other means of help
The Marathon Des Sables
The Marathon Des Sables is a 160 mile walk and run in the Sahara, over 6 days
Despite the blurb it's not necessary (I hope) to be a super hero. The daily finish line closes long after the start so that even the walkers can make it in.
Having said that it's day after day in the relentless heat
I hope I'm prepared. Catherine has put in the £ in and I've put in the training
I'm hoping that it will be an amazing transformative experience
Come and have a look at the official website and see the shiny words that lured me in

A date to remember is Monday 10th April. The emails you send me then will be the emails I get the evening before the dreaded long day, please make me laugh
