Help! I’m running against Mo Farah this Sunday…

… help me raise more sponsorship money than him!
I’m running the Great North Run this Sunday. Mo is taking part too, though our respective start times means that there’ll be 10,000 other runners between him and me at the starting line.
I’m running for Crohn’s and Colitis UK, a charity close to my heart, especially given my Crohn’s flare-up this summer. I seem to be back to full fitness, thank goodness, and hoping for no problems on Sunday.
Mo will do the course in under an hour, but I’m expecting to need at least another 45 minutes or so to cross the finishing line.
Might this offer inspire you? If Mo and I both finish, and my time is quicker than his, I’ll refund to my sponsors all their donations on my Justgiving page – plus the gift aid! There, you can’t not donate now…
Otherwise, think of me on Sunday having the time of my life over those 13.1 miles. No, really – I can’t wait to get going.
