THANK YOU ALL ROUND
1 : The Summer seems to have flown by but it has been a good one for our sport. Once again, London did us proud with excellent organisation of the World Athletics Championships. Many of you have reported personal bests and the competition in my events has been a good as I can remember
In 2017, both of my Relays have seen record fields with 103 teams finising in July in Epsom and 71 teams taking part in August's Malt Shovel Relay.
2 : Runners may not realise that by entering my events, part and sometimes all of your entry fee goes to supporting work that we have been undertaking in southern India for many years. Many of you have made additional one-off or regular donations to ensure that families with problems have been helped to overcome them. Please keep on entering my events, if only to help continue this valuable work.
3 : I would like to THANK the many of you who have been concerned about my health. As of today - 18 September 2018 - and after a few bad days, I am on a good even keel and with the treatment working, I have been on a reduced dosage of the chemotherapy drug since August and may soon be able to travel back to India for a holiday and then to visit the many families that we, through you entering my events and through generous donations, support in Kerala.
