Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

Well we did it, in a time of 4 hours, 48 minutes and 7 seconds. it was the hardest thing I've ever done! - the 6 months of training with a dodgy back, and finally the race on such a hot day.

I hit 'the wall' at 18 miles, and was pulled along by Sally for the last 8 miles, crossing the line holding hands. (how sweet)

it's not too late to sponsor me - this page will accept donations untill the end of October

thanks once again for your support

Russ and Sally
