    Paris Marathon

    Well the time has come - 16 weeks has past since you guys all voted for me. Maybe some of you have been keeping up with progress on my blog: www.indigo-cube.co.uk or on the Runners World forum.

    Sunday 8:45 I start my run. I leave tomorrow for London and Friday for Paris. I'm very nervous but am happy at how far I have come since I started running just over 2 years ago. I'm fit at the moment - despite suffering a stress fracture style injury during the training and having to take three weeks out.

    So thank you everyone for the votes that got me to here.

    I have refrained from asking for sponsorship but as it's so close I thought I would. Info here: Gareth Edmondson is fundraising for Cancer Information And Support Services (C I S S)

    There is no pressure or need. I've had a lot of support from Edugeek over the years with the running and sponsorship.

    Thanks again,

    Gareth
