OK...it does pay to have an inside connection

Hachie Gal might not have the inside track to getting a table to the most exclusive restaurant in London...or knowing a friend of a friend of a friend that can get me a concert ticket of choice....but in Hachie Gal terms (please, don't laugh! this is my world, now), I do have some inside connections into one VERY important event...

...drum roll please....

YES! Hachie Gal has already secured a 2010 London Marathon ballot courtesy of my new best friends at Guide Dogs UK. As it currently sits, I am already on a first name basis with Will and Catherine as I have run the last few races as fundraisers for them including the 2009 London Marathon and London BUPA 10000. Making friends (and collecting donations) has apparently paid off.

Just hung up with my buddy, Catherine, who has offered me one of the few Guide Dog secured ballot places. Their logic is to reach out to people earlier this year so runners can get on with their fundraising efforts well in advance and hopefully pull in a bigger amount of donations.

So, it appears that Hachie Gal has a very important date for April 25, 2010! More details to come on how you can support my efforts!
