Hello there, Zinnia here... reporting on behalf of Action Man!  I have had an ecstatic email from Brazil where pre-race activities have included visiting the Statue of Christ in Rio and swimming in the Amazon..... all good fun befor the potential horror of the next few days!  I will keep this blog updated as I hear but there are photos - one of K's back so far - and recent news of the race on the Jungle Marathon Website.  Thank you for your interest, Zin x

Hi Zin, I've scanned all the photos and can't see kes anywhere. Is he hiding- unlike him! or maybe he got dropped off at the beach? I hope you're all well, lets hope he doesn't get anymore crazy ideas!! lots of love to you and the girls and thank you for a lovely lunch.

Hi Zinnia

Like Nick, I have had a look at the photos' and I can't see Kes either, others in his old workplace, have as well?
Hope he does not have too many blisters and that the heat has not got to him, like it has to others.

I had no idea the amount of money that could be saved simply by learning to always compare prices.


Life, work, and study if it can automatic, the education of the convergence can certainly easier.
Thanks so much and stick with it No doubt you will definitely reach your goals! have a great day!

    Jungle Marathon 2008

    On October the 7th I will be taking part in the 2008 Jungle Marathon which is a 130 mile race through the Amazon Jungle.  It is a self sufficient race which means I will have to race with all of my food and bedding for the week.  Being a bit greedy this means my rucksack is currently weighing in at about 13kg. In preparation I have run about 1000 miles round herefordshire, mostly very slowly and in a bad mood, had 140 cold baths, 60 saunas and bought an unfeasible amount of kit.

    I am running the race for three reasons -
    1) it will be good fun
    2) zinnia agreed I could do this instead of selling the house
    3) to raise money for Breast Cancer Haven.  I know so many friends and family who have been affected by this odious disease that I am keen to raise funds to support this charity.

    I have included some more details about the race below and my slow bad tempered progress can be tracked on
    www.junglemarathon.com or on this blog which Zinnia will keep updated during the race

    If you make a donation please leave your email address so I can send my thanks and some photos after the race.
