Story

Run For Sue

Sue and I were great friends and great running buddies.  We ran after work a few times a week with our long run on a Sunday morning.  We had run a number of races together over the years and our distance was the half marathon – it was long enough to be challenging yet short enough to allow us to chat as we ran the course.  Our training for an upcoming event was always built around good intentions and the attraction of a latte at the end of a session.  We therefore ran faster round the beach in the evenings if the closing
time of the café at the Sports Village was looming. 

The last time Sue and I ran the Great North Run we posted a time of 1:51 (could have been sub 1:50 if we hadn’t stopped for the loo at mile 8); at the end of the race we felt invincible!   I had the privilege of spending a few days
caring for Sue after her operation and we talked about that race and how to
maintain that feeling of invincibility during her illness.  Sue tried so hard to hold on to invincibility – her determination was inspiring.  It was her intention to run the Great Aberdeen Run on 26 August and it was her choice to run in support of the Brain Tumour Research charity.  Sadly her brain tumour had no respect for her invincible outlook and denied her the opportunity to run with us.  However, I know Sue will be running alongside me in spirit and I will rely on the thought of a latte at the end of the run to keep me going.  Please provide comments of support or donations to the charity – both would be much appreciated by me and I know Sue would truly appreciate it too. 

Thank you so much for visiting my Just Giving page.
