• First up a mention for Robin Boyle, the client services director of Pilgrim Systems, who is running as part of a four man marathon team in Edinburgh on Sunday 22 May with three of his colleagues (Darren, Lee & Chris) from Pilgrim. The team is running in aid of SANDS Lothian, a charity that offers help to parents who have experienced the still birth or neo-natal death of their children. (Sadly Robin and his wife had to use this charity in 2006.) Donations can be made at www.justgiving.com/robin-boyle

• Secondly, with two exceptions – Damian Jeal of Copitrak Systems (4hrs 31) and Jacqui de Gernier of Aderant (just over 5 hours + £2500 raised for NSPCC & Small Steps) we have not had much feedback from any legal IT people who took part in last month's London Marathon. Always have to give you a mention.
