C19 has decimated charities’ fundraising opportunities due to lockdown. I was meant to run @LondonMarathon  for @HeadwayUK  . Instead this Saturday I'm going to try & break the British record for a marathon on a rowing machine. Please, please donate via

Okay, it’s not a lake but here’s the venue for my ‘rowing’ marathon in aid of @HeadwayUK  (Brain Injury Association). Going to be live-streaming here britishrowing & at . Start…

Waxing my board okay oiling my chain ahead of tmrw’s marathon. Excited, nervous & undecided. Option 1. GB record (40-49) 2:32:55.8 definitely possible 2. World record (40-49) 2:26:40.1 not happening 3. Personal goal 2:29:59.9 potentially but I could blow

Rowing marathon record attempt today. Start 9:30am, stupidly early warm up at 5:45am & I set the schedule 🤷🏻 live-streaming Instagram@jamescracknell  & @BritishRowing  or should be fun, hmm...

Thanks for the support & donations to @HeadwayUK  it was truly humbling. Broke the record, don’t think my body or butt will ever forgive me. Thanks so much. Have a great weekend everyone. #offtobed 

I want to give a heartfelt thanks for people’s support of @HeadwayUK  & me yesterday. Setting/achieving a goal & the support has given my self-confidence a lift after coping with divorce/family/work over the last 2mths. Thank you & take care

Previously I was too afraid to admit I was struggling or ask for help. Big mistake. Thanks.

Here’s a game of spot the difference. 1) @DailyMail  ‘s pic of me & my dad 2) the actual picture. Socially distant, no physical contact & was bringing them food. Been a long month of no contact, my mum worked for the NHS her whole career so she was ruthless about distance. Thanks

Today, 7th anniversary of my accident #TruckVsCracknell  Anything is possible if you set your own limits & don't let others impose them. JC

I don’t reply to people’s comments but I’m not gonna let this one go. @LubaMushtuk  & I had fun & our best dance but it wasn’t enough. I know I’m no John Travolta so to throw my toys out the pram would be stupid @TheSun  @bbcstrictly

Brexit - fancy any of this lot to Captain your ship when it’s in a crisis? Whoever put this together, loving your work.

Competitors at Invictus Games showed we use excuses not reasons for not doing something. Fancy racing this guy? No!
