Brief Update

I'm running behind on the blog again! Still trying to get my write up of Day 21's 39.2 miles finished and then I can update with Days 22, 23 and 24! Phew! Blogs will be posted asap, but may be without accompanying videos, due to lack of wi-fi. Vids will be inserted as soon as I can manage it. So watch this space!

International Go Skateboarding Day was on Thursday 21st June. It rained and rained and... rained...for 36 hours non-stop! But Big Woody's and Ramp City in Blackpool put on an awseome FREE session for all, which was really well attended. sadly, I didn't make that either because I went to see Pearl Jam in Manchester in the evening. But huge props to Long Push sponsor Big Woody's Skateboard shop in Blackpool for putting that on and giving back to the skaters, BMXicans and scooterists. I'll be at Ramp City on the 30th June for Martyn Oliver's 'Drop in' event for Macmilan cancer support.

Yesterday I went to the assembly at one of my local primary schools, Birkdale Primary to talk to the children about The Long Push 2012. I was invited by the head teacher Mr. Sheeran and teaching assistant Mrs. Hayward, who had seen The Long Push article on the SouthportGB website. After assembly I met with the school council and it was decided that they will have a cake sale to try and generate some money for The Long Push charity fund. Awesome stuff. More about this with pictures soon.

Training updates coming as soon as I can get them done!
