15 miles exactly 2hrs today !!!

Hi my name's Matt Brown, 

I'm married to Lisa and we have 3 great kids, this time last year I was very unfit and over weight, since then I have lost over 8 stone in weight and gained a new lease of life!

As soon as I had lost a few stone in weight I tried running and found I loved it!...never one to do things by halves I decided right then I would attempt to run the London Marathon!....I continued the healthy diet and got fitter..

We are blessed with healthy children so it was important for me to raise money for children who sadly were not as lucky....I heard about Claire House last year and all the wonderful help and support they give to children with devastating illnesses. I wanted to show my support by raising as much money as possible.

This is going to be a huge challenge for me but I am determined to cross the finish line, raise lots of money for Claire House and make my family proud !!...

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page and thank you for your support.

 

P.S... I will update with news on how training for the big day is going.....

Thanks again

Matt X
