Jog on - and on, and on, and on

With the news currently a torrent of idiocy, inhumanity and mindless selfishness, how pleasing to be able to report on someone who's put himself through personal hell for the benefit of (and in memory of) others.

Congratulations to Toon fan Mark Allison, who's just run 3100 miles right across the US, from sea to shining sea, in 100 days. A phenomenal achievement, and one that's well worth a donation, with all monies raised going to St Benedict's Hospice and the Children's Foundation - for more details see here.

Mark claims to have been an "18st obese Geordie who loved bacon sandwiches, football and pies" - let's hope his passion for Newcastle and the beautiful game remains undiminished, at least, even if his faith in his own sanity doesn't...
