Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As those who know me may already know, my legs were pretty well smashed up in a car crash 10 years ago. I've had problems ever since, and it became apparent that I would never be able to run due to the injuries I sustained. However that all changed in March last year when I had knee surgery to fix some cartilage and ligaments as well as to smooth out the underside of my knee cap. Whilst they were in there, they found several small bone fragments lodged in the cartilage, left over from the initial fractures. These were the cause of all the knee pain I was experiencing for so long.

Due to the overwhelming success of the operation I was hoping to compete in the 2016 Glasgow 10K, however there just wasn't enough time for post operative recovery and training before the race. I've spent the past year getting fit, running, dieting and exercising and I've now signed up to the event for 2017.

Please help support me in my challenge and raise money for Cancer Research UK.
