Today, was a very special sponsored marathon. Music Teacher Nathene had asked her students which charity they wanted to support this year and they chose Right To Play. Nathene and her husband Rick live just across the road so at 8.30am it was a short trip to their place. I was feeling really tired this morning. This was marathon #6 in a row and I was looking forward to tomorrow's day off. Rick gave me a cup of French roast and that picked me up right away.

Rick and I headed out. The plan was to come back at 12.30pm for spaghetti. I thought it was time to shot my Running Christmas music video so while Rick and I went around and around the West Pointe 1.25km loop Nathene made some phone calls. We came in at 12.30pm and had the grub. The musicians had arrived and we all trooped upstaires into Nathene's studio. The result is shown below. Marathon Martin and the Rockin Runners sing "The 6 Jogging Days of Christmas". Enjoy.

The 6 Jogging Days of Christmas - Unplugged

Members of The Rockin Runners are Phoebe (harp), Edward (violin), Jessica (flute), Kaleigh Jo (Guitar), Maree (guiter), Erin (singer) and Molly (poser). what a great bunch. I think this video will go viral or feral, I'm happy with both.

And finally the Cherubim Music students raised $510 fro right To Play. Now that's music to my ears.
