Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
For years I had applied to run the London marathon, which would be for the second time in my life (2003 being the first). Unfortunately I hadn't been lucky enough to gain a place in the ballot. Fast forward to January this year and my wife’s amazing company McCarthy and Stone gave me the opportunity to again chuck my trainers on and run the prestigious 26.2 miles around London.
Training had been going well until I suffered Tendinitis in my hip which meant I could no longer run. 5 weeks ago the London Marathon was slipping away, after 2 weeks of rest and still not being any better I made the decision to pull out as I would be guaranteed a place in next years race. This week I read the small print as I prepared to finally make the call to give the place up and realised I would not be guaranteed another opportunity for next year..... so guess what I am doing on the 28th of this month. Gritting my teeth and going out there to raise money for this worthy charity!! Point to note!! Always Read The Small Print 🤦🏻♂️.
