From a simple idea in April 2011 to 5 weeks of pain a year later, I set out to run 5 marathons in 5 weeks on 5 continents - my 5in5on5 - to raise money for some great children's charities. The first marathon was on April 22nd in London and I'm happy to say that I managed to complete all five, finishing in Singapore 5 weeks later.
The route took me from my home in Beijing to London, then onto South Africa (Centurion), Canada (Vancouver) and Australia (Melbourne - Great Ocean Road marathon) before finishing in Singapore with the Sundown marathon.
As those of you who know me will testify, I'm no endurance athlete. However, I was fully motivated by the 6 children's charities I ran for. I covered all my costs so please give as generously as you can - every penny will go to the charities on this page!
