Why this picture? Well ive have struggled with my weight my whole life, having been obese for many years. Something clicked I knew my life style was wrong. This colided with my fathers dealth.
My dad died 2/2/2009 I can't believe where the time has gone. Sadly he never got to meet my daughters whom I know he would have adored.
He had a massive heart attack and really stood no chance of survival, on his death certificate diabetics was also cited as a cause of death.
Many of you may know I swam the Thames at 7 months pregnant in 36 tuns of waste shall we call it to raise money and for some of you I'm getting the begging bowl out yet again.
I've decided to run a 3rd marathon in his honor the time just
feels right. My aim is to keep his memory alive by raising awareness for the cause dear to my heart. I'm so grateful for your support and donations to help me reach this target.
So in loving memory of the love of my life, my inspiration and father Kevin Stratford thank you so much for your kind donation
