Joining Bertie Blood Cell for the BUPA Great North Run

Our intrepid runners comprising Charlotte, Christine, Gemma, Nicky and Rob are currently in training to compete in, what promises to be, an exhausting but great day out. Many of us will be there at the finishing line cheering them on.

Rob Willis, Postcode Anywhere’s marketing manager is looking forward to meeting up with his old friend Bertie as they became quite close at a recent photo-shoot where the two of them huddled up together to hold a giant cheque we presented to Leukaemia CARE for £10,000.

The Postcode Anywhere ‘Fit Squad’ is in training most lunch times, after work and weekends. I wonder who will be first past the post? My money would be on Christine who will also be running the Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in June – some people are just born masochists aren’t they?

Apparently the event includes an after-race massage and nibbles, which seems a lot more tempting than the 13 mile run. Our friend Lauren Billington, Leukaemia CARE’s fund raising director will also be running and she’s another extremely fit lady.

Rob will certainly have is work cut out competing against the bevy of ultra fit beauties – still I’m sure they will slow down a little for him and he has got quite nice legs!
