As usual I am doing this entirely for my own enjoyment. I'm therefore in two minds about setting up a fund-raising page. People do tend to ask about it, and I've done so in the past but it was quite nice not to be fund-raising when I did the Great North 10K last summer. On the other hand, I've raised in the region of £80 to £100 quid each time I've done this which is not to be sneezed at.

I don't know. I'm half minded to fund raise for All Out to continue evacuating people from Chechnya, but I can't do that through Just Giving and I get the impression people like Just Giving as a donation platform more than just randomly giving money to charity *dithers*.

I have also entered the ballot for the London marathon. There is, as I understand matters, about a 1 in 10 chance of getting a place, so this effectively puts the "are you going to do something crazy like run a marathon?" question into the hands of the gods.

Woohoo, good luck with the half, and good luck getting into London (or not getting into London :-)

Well done you on all your runs, and exciting for a chance to do the London.
The trouble with JustGiving is that it makes it so easy, and for that I have to applaud them, but it's about damn time they capped their profits, lol!
On the other hand, giving to most charities isn't that hard online, so if you suggest a charity I will gladly make a donation in your name :)
I would give to AllOut but it says they've reached their goal, which is fab! Anyway, have a think and just say.
