Well, the task is complete as I flopped over the Great North Run finish line earlier today in a time of one hour 47 minutes and 52 seconds. I didn't win, but neither did my chief rival Mo Farah - so I call that even.
I've only had one beer so far, but intend to be completely irresponsible as soon as I finish this little ramble.
More than £1,200 is now with or pledged to Candlelighters as a result of your efforts over the past few weeks. And I think Mags would have been pleased with that.
Thank you to everybody who gave cash or supported what we were trying to do in other ways. You're all great.
Now it's time for that beer...
