I’m running the London Marathon in 2004 for VICTA, a UK charity supporting Visually Impaired Children across the country.
It seems an appropriate charity to run for, since VICTA’s meagre annual budget, spent on specialised educational equipment for blind and partially sighted children, is raised almost entirely by runners like me.
Running thirty miles or more each week in frost, rain and sunshine provides plenty of time for looking at the scenery. Even when it’s occasionally through something of a red mist, there’s much to be seen along the way.
It’s going to be a long journey towards Greenwich on 18th April (and, with luck and a fair wind, to The Mall at some time later that day…).
Many thanks for your support.
