Eating more food & drinking more beer is my usual motive. So I'm participating in the Great North Run on 9th Sept to support the charity Mentor Link.

About

I've always enjoyed a lazy morningwatching the Great North Run from the comfort of my bed, usually accompanied by a bacon sandwich & cupof coffee. I now have an opportunity to join thousands in the worlds largest half marathon to hobble cobbles from Newcastle to South Shields. Hope you can be part of the event with me.
POST RACE Jibber jabber....
Headed up Fri 7th 30m nth Newcastle to Alnmouth. Plentiful Red&Amber hydration on Fri Nt swilled down with FishNChips. Sat in Newcastle for GRN festivities, friend in Jr race & pasta party, bed 11 & up at 7. Journey to race from Nth on Sun morning very quick. Great singalong warmup at the start, 30min back from Mo before crossing start line. Sun shinning throughout & very warm, enabling me to improve my framers tan. Calf strapped meant limp from 4 miles onwards. 8 miles difficult& lack of training caught up with me. Stop & start for remainder of the race, taking on refreshments from great crowd inc Energy Gel-Oranges-Biscuits-Jelly Babies & pint of beer at 11m. Great sights & emotional atmosphere throughout the day. I did look out for Endorphine all day & never did find her! But did catch up with Guinness by quayside. Thanks everyone.

Event details

Rob's Great North Run for Mentor Link

I will be running the Great North Run on 9th September so we can help the charity ‘Mentor Link’ with the great work they are doing. Mentor Link supports vulnerable or distressed children and young people by providing them with one on one mentoring, listening support and guidance. This can be during very difficult and traumatic times in their lives, such as bereavements, family breakdowns, self-harm and bullying. Mentor Link support these young people with over 200 volunteer mentors and a team of dedicated and experienced staff. I ask for your support with the much needed funds to continue helping young people feel valued and go on to achieve with confidence. Thank you Rob.
