I’m Stephen Day – I work at TEU and I do some design work for the UnionAID team from time to time. This year I’ve decided to run the Rotorua Marathon. Rotorua Marathon is one complete circle of Lake Rotorua and is New Zealand’s most run, and walked, marathon. It’s also one of the hardest marathons in New Zealand.
I’m going to run for UnionAID, and I’m looking for your sponsorship. The marathon is 26 miles and is on 28 April 2012.
I’ve never run a marathon before, but I have done a bit of competitive running – all distances from 800 metres up to half-marathons. However, as Kiwi olympic medalist Barry Magee once said, “Anyone can run twenty miles. It’s the next six that count.”
To make it fair, because I’m already a runner, I’ll only take people’s money if I finish in the top ten. That will require me, first, to finish both the training and the race.
