Thumbs down THE LONDON MARATHON 26miles of hell!

Hey guys and girls,
I've swapped my engine power for pair of trainers and a gruelling 26.2mile run around London tomorrow morning, SUNDAY 17TH www.sarahdonohue.com at 9.45am

If you want to give Cancer Research a quick donation before my site closes at GMT midnight tonight...i think!! Then please go through the above link and it will redirect you to the 'Just Giving' site. I work a lot for 2 charities, this is one and St Dundstans Military Charity is the other. If I have to crawl around on my knees I'll get to the end. I'm thinking of going in fancy dress, in a bodybag to save time at the end

Please give, we have a few hours left and I'd like to reach my target which is only $1000, I have $750 already. 1 in 5 people get Cancer!

In November I'll be going straight from the Key West World Championships to the Canary Islands where I will be competing in the Transatlantic Rowing Race 3000miles for the Military Charity. 2 Months at sea in a Rowing boat, in the Worlds most extreme race, so I'll be back begging nearer the time!

Thankyou for your time...... If only I could do some of the 26miles in a boat on the Thames

love saretta!

good job on the run. I few of my friends are running the boston marathon tommorow. the most ive ever run in a day is 17 miles broken up in 3 sections and i was dying. good luck rowing too. i rowed on my crew team for a year and a half, by far the hardest sport ive ever done.

I got tons of tips, mainly, use your legs most and keep your back stiff shoulders relaxed and just use your arms to follow through, i see too many novieces pushing hard with their legs but their backs are folding so their leg power isnt getting put into the oar. then they try to wrestle the oar through the water with their arms and back which is inneficent, wears them out way too soon, is much slower and can cause injuries. The most I've ever rowed ina day was about 35-40 miles on the water.
Good luck again, im sure youll do awesome.
