44 half marathons down, only 6 to go!

My friend Mark has nearly finished his challenge of doing 50 half marathons in 60 days on the Concept 2 indoor rower.  That adds up to over 600 miles!  He is doing it to raise money for a local 9 year old girl who fell from a climbing  frame, and is now paralysed for life. Well, yesterday, he completed his 44th row, so he only has 6 more to do.  His final one is due a week tomorrow (Tuesday 30th). If you havent watched them already, please watch the following 2 videos so you know what he is doing and why.  Then please follow this link (click here) and donate any money you can to a very wonderful cause…

Half a marathon is 21.1 km, or 21,097 metres long.  That is a long way.  It takes my friend Mark about 1 hour 20 minutes to row it on the indoor rowers here at work.  The British record for his division is 1 hour 13 minutes.  So Mark is going at a very good pace, and he is working his body hard! Almost everyone I tell is very impressed by this…then I tell them that he is going to do 50 of these half marathons over the course of 60 days…then everyone is impressed! Other ways of saying 50 half marathons include:
