Edinburgh Marathon 2008

I decide to run for a local charity this year, the one I chose was Circle, a local Scottish based charity that help young children and families, I managed to raise over £400 which I’m really happy with. Big thanks to everyone that sponsored me, my sponsor page is still open and will be for a couple of weeks so if you have a couple of pounds burning in your pocket then feel free to donate to a worthy cause here.

Circle was formerly part of the UK wide organisation FSU which had been providing services in Scotland since 1974 for some of the most vulnerable children and families. Circle currently works across Edinburgh, West Lothian, North and South Lanarkshire

This will be my 3rd Edinburgh Marathon and I’ve got to say, I really quite enjoyed it. The atmosphere on the day was brilliant. Although the weather was a little overcast in the morning, after the first couple of hours it  improved considerably.

The only thing that was a bit annoying was the wind which blew from mile 6 to 18 and hampered my speed a bit. Saying that, I don’t suppose I can complain too much this is Scotland after all!
