It's 10 years since my first (and only) marathon. In 1999 I was 20, sprightly and fresh. Now I'm a jaded 30 year old. But I'm determined to beat my younger self. This is a race against time and age. Please give me the inspiration to cross the line in under 3 hours 52 minutes and prove to myself that I'm not over the hill.
And much more importantly, please make a contribution to HemiHelp. It's one of the lesser known charities and therefore is all the more in need of your help. HemiHelp provides help and support for families of children suffering from hemiplegia. It's a condition caused by damage to the brain during or soon after birth, or later in childhood and it affects one child in 1,000. It causes weakness and a lack of control in one side of the body, a bit like a stroke. Thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks for your help.
