Story

In 1984 at just 58 years old my Grandpa lost his fight to Bowel cancer, i was only 8 years old at the time but i lost my chance forever to show him how much he meant to me. I am not the greatest runner to have ever graced the track and i have never run more than 10km in one go but i just had the urge to make some small contribution and help raise some valuable donations for the bowel and cancer research charity and so i decided to sign up for the Dubai Marathon in January 2013.

I know that times and money are tight but if you could find it in your hearts to make a small donation it would mean the world to me and my family, if not, then dont worry a note of encouragement from you would spur me on just as much, thank you. Stuart xx

Less than 3 weeks to go, training is going ok, not as good as i hoped by whatever i will be aiming to finish the race in 4 hours.
