First, a confession.
This isn't my first blog. I did keep a record of my time training for the London Marathon earlier this year. Looking back I'm glad I did - it was a snapshot of a man in training who'd never run a mile before let alone 26 (If you're interested, I did it in 5hrs 20mins and raised £1,200 for the Spinal Injuries Association.)
But with this blog I wanted to give vent to my thoughts and opinions as a thirtysomething PR director and Labour Party activist living in London.
I hope you enjoy it.
