I'm heading over to Newcastle upon Tyne to attempt to complete the Great North Run half marathon on Sunday morning!

I'm trying to use the event to raise some money to help fund the services provided by the Kildare and West Wicklow Hospice at the Drogheda Memorial hospital on The Curragh and in the community.

If you would like to help by making a contribution no matter how small or large please have a look at my fundraising page on mycharity .ie

Those of you who will be looking out for me on BBC TV on Sunday morning, my run number is 36102 and I will be starting from Green H way near the back so I won't pass the start line until at least 15 minutes after the gun goes to start the race. I'm hoping to complete in approx 2hours 15 minutes so I don't expect to be passing the finish line until sometime between 13:00 -13:15. 
I'll be wearing the same bright green top as in the pic below

Believe it or not I'm planning to take part in the Great North Run half Marathon between Newcastle on Tyne and South Shields on the 7th of September.

Training has been going well and if I can manage to keep all my decrepit bits and pieces injury free for just another little while, despite it being just 12 months since I began a Couch to 5K running program, I'm optimistic that I'll be able to complete this my first half marathon run.

It would be nice if I could use the occasion to raise a few quid to help support the wonderful work that the people at the Kildare and West Wicklow Hospice do both at the Drogheda memorial (the Jockey hospital) on The Curragh and in homes all over Kildare and West Wicklow

I've set up a fundraising page on mycharity if you could please take the time to make a small donation to this very worthy cause I'd be very grateful
