The wife has signed herself up to take part in Race For Life, where women across Britain run five miles to raise money for Cancer Research UK. It's a great idea and a good cause - let's face it, who hasn't lost somebody they care about to cancer?

In Edinburgh the runners are going around Arthur's Seat, a rather spectacular rock formation in the centre of the city, but one with plenty of hills and dales involved. As a consequence, the wife has gone into training for the next eight weeks, and I'm training with her as moral support. Three times a week we're getting up before dawn and going running - not something I ever thought I'd be doing! I keep remembering the pre-dawn running scene from Rocky. Fortunately, we don't have to swallow five raw eggs before we take to the streets.
