Story

Hello!! Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am running the Seville Marathon on 19th February and I need your help to raise some money for Cancer Research UK. It will be my first marathon!

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to saving lives through research. They have saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

Recently, I have noticed that a marathon is a really long way. A lot longer than I intially thought. On the basis of how painful some of my training runs have been, I can guarantee you the marathon will be very painful indeed. So please help me make sure the pain and exhaustion is all worthwhile by donating to this fantastic charity.

I shouldn't rub it in to those of you in the UK, but the weather is already really quite hot and sunny here in Seville and I will not only fry like bacon on the race course, but the heat exhaustion will most likely make the marathon even harder than it should be. Eek!

It would really mean a lot and will help me out on the day when I inevitably hit "the wall" around 23 miles and wonder why on earth I am running this thing. Please give whatever you can. I really do appreciate it. It's a seriously worthwhile charity and one that I feel very strongly about.

Thanks in advance,

Chris
