I always said I'd never run a marathon.
But when Alison, who a friend who I am very fond of and respect deeply asked me to run a marathon with her, well, I couldn't refuse. Besides, after doing my Land's End to John O' Groats (and beyond) walk, I know that we are physically capable of more than we imagine.
"To my amazement, at so many stages along the way [in life], the limits that I thought I could see in the distance, dissolved as I approached them. They turned out not to be real at all, but mere assumptions". (Chrissie Wellington)
MS is a really difficult neurological condition, for which the causes and how to best treat it are not yet fully understood. Much more research is needed. Your donation will help with this. I have a dear friend who has this condition, and that's what has motivated me to raise funds for this cause.
Meanwhile, I'll put my new resolution in writing for posterity. I'm only going to run one marathon in my life!
So I will be very chuffed and grateful for your sponsorship. Any donation however small is much appreciated.
