I’m attempting to deal with the string of unfortunate events in current affairs by being more generous.
Although I spent much of April writing a tutorial for .net Magazine, I did enjoy a brief respite while I ran the Brighton Marathon. Yep, it’s been quite the month.
I’ve always wanted to run a marathon, but shorter races were beset by poor training. Since taken running more seriously, I’ve become lighter, leaner and possibly even a bit faster. If I’m ever to achieve my dream of running a marathon, then this is the year to do it. An Olympic year too.
As the masses on Twitter congratulate themselves on their latest technology purchase, I feel strangely removed from all the excitement.
In less than two months time, I will once again be donning my running shoes to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
This Friday is Red Nose Day, the main fundraising event in support of Comic Relief, a charity that supports projects in the UK and Africa.
