It just all seems so casual...and anyway it´s only 26.2 miles. And it´s only 6 months of training - early morning runs, healthy eating and maybe even giving up alcohol! How hard can it be?! (Very according to all my friends who have already run marathons!)
But why I hear you ask? Well the thing is my dad has Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life. It's an extremely hard thing to go through and he will be in hospital for a rather long time and quite frankly when you put it into perspective running a marathon is pretty easy compared to that.
I´ll be raising money for Anthony Nolan because the work they do in getting people onto the bone marrow register, raising awareness and supporting families like us is second to none.
What´s more, each person they sign up costs Anthony Nolan £100. So every pound donated will make a difference to this cause.
Oh I forgot to mention that you can sign up too by the way at www.Anthonynolan.org if you're not already registered. It's so simple!
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
THANK YOU!!!! Your support will not only help people in need like my dad but also help propel me along on the day!
