The next opportunity to raise some extra charity money was at a Star Wars collectors convention called Echo Live, held in a shopping centre in Redditch. Echo Live is the brain child of Adam Pemberton from the Echo Base Facebook group. This had the potential to be great! Would it be?.....
It’s been a week since the London Marathon 2018. Wow, what a day that was.
In January 2018 I had applied to try to defend the Guinness World Record which I had achieved last year (Fastest Marathon Dressed as a Star Wars Character - Male), however as the weeks got closer to April the 22nd I realised that this was the last thing I actually wanted to do.
So the 2018 fundraising campaign had started. I had a place on the London Marathon, was planning the 100 Km run and had just developed the Virtual Run Series. You might think that those 3 elements would be enough. Oh no, the Running Stormtrooper had much more to do.
