... sorry, yet another tedious "middle aged bloke trying to give his running some purpose beyond his ongoing battle with his own belly by doing a charity run" begging thread again. What makes it even worse is I've dragged my dog into it as well, to try to give it some cute appeal (because while I may be called many things, cute is not something I get called often). So we're doing the "Muddy Dog Challenge" in aid of Battersea Dogs' Home in May. Got to be worth coughing up a few quid, if only out of sympathy for the dog

Thanks in advance for your generosity Smiley

Bump! Just under a week to go, and I've dressed the dog up in the race gear in a desperately cynical attempt to extract a few extra quid in sponsorship with the "Aaaahhh!" factor.



 Go on you know you want to..... even if you don't rate Battersea Dogs' Home, this is an opportunity for me to get completely humiliated in mud, and, on past experience, badly injure myself. If that's not worth a few quid, I don't know what is.

Thanks to everyone who sponsored me and the dog, we completed the Muddy Dog Challenge Saturday lunchtime, great fun and every bit as muddy as advertised. Raised over 300 quid for Battersea Dogs' Home (and still chance to increase that if you're feeling generous - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/PaulAndChoski)

You'd be astonished how infrequently I'm asked for pictures of me in the bath Smiley In fact, one work colleague, having seen the photos of the dog in the bath, agreed to sponsor us on the sole condition that I promised there would be no similar photos of me. So I'm sorry to disappoint, horlock, but alas no.
