I wrote a letter to His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge in January and received a response late last month. I explained what I was doing - running a marathon for Save the Rhino - and that it would be my first trip to England. I also suggested the marathon - which involved a lot of charities - might be an ideal event for gaining press coverage of the severe poaching crisis. It seems as though that last part may have been misinterpreted, but nevertheless, it was pretty awesome to receive a letter from a royal. Royal mail! See what I did there?
I'm very excited - my first marathon is only 4 weeks away!!!
