So, here’s the link to my donations page - https://www.movember.com/nz/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink®o=1690846&country=nz
Also, if I raise over $30 I get a free razor – so dig deep ladies and germs.
Week 1 - Freshly shaved (I had to remove my sub lip growth, boooo!)
End of Week 1 - Showing the beach how not make your 'tache' join up with your beard
Midway Movember Mo - it's annoying me now! (taken a cople of weeks ago)
(Pics of the final creation to come tomorrow - how exciting!)
Here’s some spiel about the charity, etc:
The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to the Cancer Society of New Zealand and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand. These two charities will use the money raised to fund research and increase support networks for those affected with prostate cancer and experiencing depression.
Did you know:
Depression affects 1 in 10 men....Most people who experience depression make a full recovery. The first step is seeking help.
Last year in New Zealand 2,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 600 died of prostate cancer - (that's nearly two each day).
For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at: [Fundraising Outcomes].

I (James) finished in 1:54, under the 2hour mark I was aiming for so I was reasonably happy, considering the pain in my legs. Jody managed to complete in about 2:31, longer than she would have liked, but her knees were giving her some right 'jip'. Think she's worn them away for good, hobbling about the house at the moment.
Now we can say, "been there, done that, actually got the t-shirt" (as proof), etc. Not really tempted by another long distance slog, once is enough.
Pics below, will send a link later on to the official pics.
Not many marathons will take you past a beach.
But I managed it here!
