Story

 

 

Hello there! 

So on 15th April I completed this relentless 26.2 mile slog. 

I felt fantastic for the first half of the race, it was a glorious day and I was in a wonderful mood - at around mile 16 though my mood started to turn to mild irritation, and from here on in, a strange, progressive mix of pain, anger and grit determination, head down and brows furrowed, my feet felt like balls of fire and my legs and brain had a fully blown metaphorical fist fight. This was relieved with just 200m to go, as I heard a great wail, - mum! (the time was a little later than I predicted..)

Please help me my target by donating what you can. 

I'm raising money for Crohn's and Colitis UK, as after diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 5 years ago, it finally gained an upper hand in May 2011 when I ended up in A&E in a bit of a pickle!

Long story short, Crohn's and Colitis UK were a very important part of my recovery. 

My hope is that by running the 2012 Brighton marathon I might encourage and inspire other people with these conditions, to let them know they're not alone. 

Unfortunately, these lifelong conditions can be exhausting, painful and unpredictable. They affect around 1 in 250 people in the UK, including many children, and the impact on education, work, social and family life can be very tough. 

Almost all the funding for vital research, into providing better specialised patient care and into finding in a cure, comes entirely from UK fundraisers and donations. 

Please help me raise money for Crohn's and Colitis UK by sponsoring me to complete the very real challenge of running 26.2 miles!

 

Big thank you for your support
