    Hi Jason

    Sorry if I have missed it, but have you got an update on how you are getting on with your marathon challenge - 365 half marathons in 12 months for the MS Society?

    Where have you been running? How much have you raised? Future plans for for your challenge? I couldn't seem to find your website in your profile to check.

    Also I thought you might like to see this article from the Guardian on Chris Jackson, the inspirational runner I mentioned to you who dedicated 2010 to raise awareness of the humanitarian crisis in the Congo where 5.5 million have died.

    Chris ran 12 marathons, assorted Ironman's, triathalons, 10ks etc including the first marathon in the Congo where he ran in eastern Kivu between projects run by Women for Women International, the charity Chris has been supporting.

    I have been helping Chris with his PR and he really is the most amazing young man.

    Hi,

    WOW, i have just read the guardian article, that is terrible, and he is supporting such a great cause. I wonder what he will do next?

    My website is down at the minute, only until Thursday as there are a few alterations being done and changing the hosting. It is mschallenge(dot)co(dot)uk.

    I have huge plans for this challenge throughout the course of they year. I am currently in talks with an events company who organise half marathon events to set up an event dedicated to this cause, and the talks are going well. I also have lots of products from big brands for me to raffle etc. I completed my 11th half marathon today and i am actually enjoying it so far. I have been running in the Nottingham area and will do for the first whole month, just to get things started and to get into a little routine.

    Any advice from your experience from working with Chris would be greatly appreciated!

    yes ;)

    but it will take less effort than running a marathon!
    do it weekly / monthly...
