In 2012, my Uncle suffered a stroke and the impact it's had on his life has been huge.
In support of him, my sister ran the 2013 Great North Run in aid of The Stroke Association . When she started her training for it, I told her that if she reached her fundraising target, and completed the run I'd join her next year. She did both. Bollocks.
After applying for my place and getting my guaranteed place this morning (18th Feb) I am now doing the 2104 Great North Run in aid of The Stroke Association.
So far, my training for this has consisted of installing a load of fitness apps on my phone and finding where I put my trainers.
I'm going to be blogging about my progress between now and September and I'll be trying out a number of apps and gadgets along the way. Here goes nothing.
