Story

Thank you for visiting my JustGiving Site.

My mum had Myasthenia Gravis. It's not fun, but with help, a lot of sufferers can lead normal lives a lot of the time. The Myasthenia Gravis Association helps sufferers.  Please give generously.

I am running / staggering around the Leicester Marathon to give a little back to a charity that needs your money.

My cunning training plan is to start traning on 10th of May, So I have 5 months from not being able to jog 100 yards to running a marathon. It's not going to be easy but if I can do this, can you please dig into your pockets and help the Myasthenia Gravis Association, because every £1 helps.

THANK YOU for your support.

Please Note: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I ran my last training run last night. A gentle 4 mile run. Next time the trainers go on will be for the marathon itself.

Updated on Oct 6th 2012 at 5:33 PM from the JustGiving API 12k in 84m If I could keep it up for 42.2k would be just under 5h. Still realistically thinking 5:30-5:45

Updated on Sep 23rd 2012 at 3:27 PM from the JustGiving API Hiiiiiii. Ok I did my 20 mile / 32km run in 4h 12m 52s. I'm not going to break any records :-) but I should just get around within the 6 hour limit.

Updated on Sep 20th 2012 at 9:27 PM from the JustGiving API I just sprinted 8km 53m 5s never felt that quick in my life, that was hard work. That was my last fast run in my plan now it's all about settling on a marathon pace and doing all my runs at around that pace.
