Thank you for visiting our Christies JustGiving page!
Last year, our very great friend Dunk raised over £12,000 for Macmillan and Christies during his Five Marathons campaign. Somehow he managed to talk us into Edinburgh... thanks Dunk :-)... see the extract from his Five Marathons blog below!
We are, in our rather smaller way, carrying on in his footsteps.
"TEAM fivemarathons’ Lucy will also run her first marathon in 2010 and this week, Lucy and Amanda signed up for Edinburgh. This is a great show of support from Amanda, who had sworn that she would never run another marathon. When they asked me to run with them, I soon realised that it was only three weeks after Vancouver. That may seem like awkward timing, but it actually works reasonably well – although I’ll inevitably have to be shuffling around at the back, it won’t interrupt my six months’ of preparation for Auckland on 31 October 2010. In any event, after all of the races that Lucy and Amanda have kindly run with me this year (Coniston 14, Great Manchester Run, Congleton Half Marathon), I’m really keen to return the favour. London and Edinburgh are the real contenders for UK marathons. All of the others are a little too small, especially if, as Lucy maintains, it will be the only marathon she ever runs. I’d be confident that, once she has the medal around her neck, she’ll be itching to race again." Yeah, right Dunk!
