Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As some of you know, I have roped my old man into running a half marathon this march in Bath. Both (very) novice runners, our journey has involved lots of tears, pain and laughs. Whilst I recently ran with Mo Farah and took my training seriously, believe me when I say it took a lot to prize dad off the sofa and the glass of red out of his hand! However the progress we have made has been nothing short of a miracle, and we are now both confident of reaching that finish line (no matter how slow!)

We are running for a great charity close to our hearts, Parkinsons UK. If you could spare even a couple of pounds towards a fab cause, (and more importantly revelling in the pain about to be inflicted on me & my dad) then please do leave a donation. Many, many thanks!
