Worcester’s Lance Turner discusses his most recent commitment, turning 50 and dressing as a parrot….
Having turned 50 in March 2010 I keep moderately ‘in trim’ with a few games of tennis and the occasional jog and visit to the gym.
As so often happens when chatting to a good friend you sometimes let your guard slip and end up agreeing to doing something you later regret.
But it’s all in a good cause!
It was Robin Mayo who many may know from the Business Team at RBS who was the friend in question and we are both now entered for the London Marathon 2011 being held on 17th April.
I am running for Leukaemia Care with Robin for St Richards Hospice, both well known locally based charities for which we have a close association with to raise the awareness of and to raise funds for.
To anyone who asks me my comments generally centre on how difficult all the preparation is for a Marathon and at my age the training is really tough!!
The aim is to finish the race on the same day that I start! Seriously I think I can beat the 5 hour mark if I really stretch myself, which is what I’m aiming to do.
If anyone would like to sponsor me I would really appreciate it and I have now set up a Just Giving page:- www.justgiving.com/lanceturner
p.s. I won’t be running dressed up as a parrott!
