Well, I have just been notified that I won the lottery!!!!..... That is, the lottery to enter the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on 13th OCtober 2013! I am running the marathon for a great little charity called the Galway Simon Community who do fantastic work in the local community by providing loads of support to people who have lost heir homes.

Dear #chicagomarathon, I've decided that, despite these #shinsplints and a three week lapse in training, I'm still going to kick your ass

Brenden you are by far my favourite Uncle (mainly because you have chickens and speak funny) I don't even mind that you are terrible at golf. I would be totally crushed if you don't win this race. Love always JJ. P.S. I got a new spiderman lunch box it is blue.
