I have a sponsor!!

I’ve been feeling left out over the last few months.

Firstly Marco tells me that he’s now being sponsored by Hampden Fitness Centre then Richie announces on facebook that he’s running the UTMB as part of the Pearl Izumi Team.

Then Thomas, Debs and Sharon are picked to represent Scotland in the 100k Anglo Celtic Plate.

But now all good things come to those who wait ….

I can officially announce that SAGA holidays are going to sponsor me!

It seems they have been looking for someone over 50 who shows that life is still to be lived to the maximum and someone in the company came across my blog!

So I’ll be running in the SAGA colours at my four ultra races this year.

They will also pay my expenses (and Katrina!) for warm weather training next year as well as a holiday after the whw race to help me recover.

Impressed? I am!

    Great news John! Now that your training route will be laps of a cruise ship, does this bring the prospect of a track or road 100k ever-closer?

    Will the official SAGA kit include incontinence shorts?

    Presumably it's a sponsorship for one day only, John, and only up to 12 noon?

    If it was not the 1st of April I would probably congratulate…

    It's not that you do not deserve sponsorship!

    So I better wait until tomorrow with my congratulations.
