Keep on, keep on Running - to the land of make believe!!

Alright people, well I've pleased to inform you all that I completed my marathon experience on Sunday, running all 26.2 miles non-stop.
It was an accumulation of 5 months hard training, but oh so worth it.
It was a fantastic feeling finally reaching the "land of make believe" aka the finishing line.
I wasn't quite like the picture above, but all the same not far off.
It poured it down from start to finish which wasn't ideal conditions, but I'm proud to inform that I completed it in under 3 hours 30 mins which was my target.
Collectively through my various runs I managed to raise over £1000 for my chosen charity "Get Kids Going", so a big thank you to all of you who sponsored me.
Those who haven't  yet, I'd be very grateful of further donations to the fantastic charity that supports helping young disabled people partake in and enjoy sporting activities.

Ok, back to the music. No I haven't gone soft on you, this really is a PCC.
Hard to believe I know, but just have a listen it is a very special track and a cracking remix by the Disco Brothers dating back to 1991.
It's also got lots of running connotations which is very apt.
"Run for the sun little one"
And that repeating catchy line "Keep on, keep on running", which I was constantly focused on when running the marathon on Sunday.
All this coupled with some banging piano and a few "unbelievable" samples make for a really top tune.
Enjoy, focus hard and you can achieve your "land of make believe"!!

Very well done! It's something I'd love to think I could do, but know I'd fail after a couple of miles!!

Great news for the charity too...

Thanks for all the tunes, loving 'em all...

Congratulations! That is no easy feat and you should be quite proud, not only for finishing, but also for your charitable contribution. And a very respectable time, to boot - well done, sir!
