A 12 Month Delay

     This is one of the harder posts that I have had to write. Because of factors beyond my control I am now no longer going to be able to take part in the 2014 Marathon Des Sables. A change of circumstances with work has meant that I am no going to be unavailable during the course of this years event. (The joys of life in the military...)

     I am however going to be taking part in the 2015 Marathon Des Sables. The extra year I now have to prepare means that I should be stronger, fitter and better prepared than I could possibly have been this year, for taking part in what will be the 30th Anniversary running of the MdS. I would like to thank everyone who reads this blog for all the support they have given me so far, and for putting up with this unavoidable delay.

    To anyone who has already donated on the just giving page I would like to offer my most heartfelt thanks. As I am delaying by 12 months I do feel I have broken the spirit of the sponsorship contract, so should you feel you would like your donation refunded please contact me through twitter or Facebook and I shall arrange for this to happen at once.
