Story

Hi

Following the weeks of gruelling training, the big day came and I managed to complete the distance. Found it very hard going but can honestly say that all the encouragement and donations received helped me stagger on to the end. 

I hit the infamous wall at 17 ish miles and was reduced to a controlled stumble thereafter. Therefore a slow slow time (5.27) but one that I hope to improve upon should I try another one. Trying a more sensible half marathon in September so I can't have been too traumatized!

Thanks again to those who donated to a worthy cause. If you didn't, it's not too late! The site will be open for another few weeks.

Cheers

Nick.

 

 

 

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
