Congratulations to Mike McDonald who with Paris cancelled took it upon himself to run a marathon in his front and back garden. Fuelled by Cheese and Wine Mike ran 6 hours 28 minutes and raised £368 for his efforts.
I Should have been doing Paris Marathon today, 5th April; but couldn’t go obvs, so instead I brought Paris to me. Fueled by Chateaneuf-du-Pape, coffee, croissants, and Brie; the ‘Not the Paris Marathon’ was in my garden due to the lock-down on behalf of the Warwickshire and Solihull Bloodbikes. As a charity, they volunteer and transport plasma, drugs, X-rays etc. between hospitals for free; saving the NHS the taxi costs which is better spent on patient care, PPE etc. for the front-line staff.
