On the last day of this month, I am running the Spartan Race South London Super, in support of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF).
(You can read many more details on my blog.)
SOWF provides full college scholarships to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Special Operations Command. As I've written many times elsewhere, our special operators are truly the very best of our very best – they train like professional athletes, perform like minor Gods, and lay it all on the line every day in defense of freedom and decency – and on our behalf.
The Spartan Race is for civilians whose lives are too damned cushy and sedentary, and allows maniacs like me to go out there for a day and crawl through mud and jump over fire and throw spears and get pummelled with pugil sticks.
Any contribution is greatly appreciated. (Really just looking for $10 here, $15 there - you people are embarrassing me!) Thanks for your support!!
