A sucker for a spot masochism in the name of a good cause this daft bint has committed herself to three races this year for charity. :OMG: So, once more I extend my sticky mitts in the direction of all you kind-hearted ARRSErs in the name of Combat Stress and more specifically those who rely so heavily on them. My cockles are still warm after the last yearâs resounding success thanks in large part to the generosity of the ARRSE collective, but, not being one to rest on my laurels the goal is that with your help we can keep the support going for this crucial charitable facility. No full marathon this time, rather Iâve committed to a half marathon occurring this weekend, followed by the London 10k in July (with the ARRSE team) and the Great South Run in October. Historically preferring wrapping my pins around magnificent half-tonne beasts [oi, thats horses you perverts!] to thrashing them around the roads I've been as surprised as those around me at my dedication to running over the past couple of years. I'm not sure I could have maintained motivation without everyone's support in my desire to assist this important charity. Combat Stress is one of the few avenues providing a literal life-line to wounded ex-service personnel. It is also, I feel, an organisation treating a condition that is often woefully misunderstood. I wonât insult you by preaching to the converted, most of you have a far greater understanding of the debilitating mental injury that is PTSD than many, suffice to say bringing to prominence this all too real battle damage as well as the resources to be able to effectively tackle it is essential. Of the wonderfully benevolent things occurring on ARRSE at the moment please, please consider hurling a beer token or two in the direction of this short-arrse, beasting herself along a road near you, instead of down the khazi as second-hand beer, up in carcinogenic smoke or on pox-ridden whores. ROLL UP, ROLL UP, GET ETERNAL SALVATION [probably] HERE Thank you. PS. As before, should anyone prefer not to use the justgiving facility then PM me for cheque/cash/IOU pledges.
