    I heard you on 3AW this morning and just had to jump on the website. Yes you are crazy, but best of luck with your challenge in the year ahead!
    Good luck and as I write this you are most likely just about, if not finished your first marathon!!

    Hi Darren

    Just had a look at your website. Good luck in Zurich. I will be keeping an eye on your progress with interest.

    Got Dad and Margie staying at my place on Sunday so hope to get an update from RunLikeCrazy before they arrive.

    We saw the New Year in in style and will have a beer for you.

    Good luck and cheers

    Thanks for the pledge Wollongong! I do appreciate every dollar sent our way to keep us going. The more money raised for UNICEF the better. Cheers!
