This weekend I have two trauma's coming along. The first is the fact that I have to miss the UK Masters "Shoot the Rainbow" tournament, the final event of the UK Tournament calendar, so I have to miss out on shooting the Nexus lads.
The second trauma is that I am missing Shoot the Rainbow because I'm running the Great North Run in aid of "Children with Cancer UK". This is a half marathon. The last 4 months have seen this 43 year old lazy paintballer (Who was seriously considering buying a Segway to get to my car), go from wheezing after running 1/2 a mile to currently wheezing after 10 miles. I am hopeing the extra 3.1 miles are all down hill!!!!
So far we've raised well over £1000 for the charity from the Chocolate Factory Charity Auction, the Staargate T Shirts and from donations from.....
Chocolate Phil Waite
Cheryl Pattison and Craig Pattison
Duncan Thedecorator Martin
I should be crossing the start line at around 11am and my aim is to finish sometime before midnight. (Hopefully in trainers and not in the back of an ambulance).
If anyone has a spare £1 and would like to support a great cause (Not the idiot who's been coerced into this madness), i've set up a just giving page at:
Any donation, no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance..
