I'm walking a half marathon at London's Shine Night Walk!

Dear all,

Sorry to bother you, but I appear to have got myself into a bit of a situation.

Last month, I was asked by my family to join them in the Cancer Research UK Shine Half Marathon, and I cheerily signed up. However, my weakness in interpreting anachronistic imperial measurements has foiled me. I recently discovered that a half marathon, or 13.1 miles, is OVER 21 KILOMETRES.

As such, I have accidentally signed up to trek across London for 21.095km - equivalent to walking from Pinner to Buckingham Palace. At night. In the cold.

Most of you will know I struggle to get out of bed before midday. So any funds that you can spare in sympathy would be greatly appreciated.

In all seriousness, the funds raised couldn't be going to a more worthwhile cause. We all know loved ones who have battled cancer. Moreover, 1 in 2 of us will face cancer in our lifetimes.

But Cancer Research wants to change this. They fund vital research, to ensure that 3 in 4 will survive their cancer diagnosis by 2034.

We're already seeing results. Thanks to their tireless work, survival rates have more than doubled since the 1970s, from 1 in 4 to 1 in 2.

We are beating cancer sooner.

So please donate if you can. And even if you can't, please stick around to see my muscles struggle to remember what anaerobic respiration looks like.

Lots of love,
