Hi, Anup & Andy here.
We are (foolishly!) attempting to run the 2012 London Marathon in order to raise some funds for the British Heart Foundation. BHF are working towards a world where people no longer die prematurely of heart disease. So please dig deep and donate now. Thanks for visiting!
WHY AM I DOING THIS???
I'm not really sure - there are plenty of reasons why I SHOULDN'T be doing it!! I'm the wrong side of 40, my knees are dodgy (to say the least!), I haven't had any sort of fitness for over 10 years, and the furthest I've ever run is 10km - more than 20 years ago! Running the London marathon is not something I should be considering.
However, this is also the greatest challenge I have ever faced - and ever will. This is a one-time only deal. It is a chance for me to achieve something I never thought possible, and raise a bunch of money for a great charity at the same time. The BHF fund research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease. I will be running in memory of my Dad, a great man who died of heart disease a few years ago. I still miss him daily.
Please help by giving whatever you can - any donation at all will be gratefully received.
Don't make me go through this for nothing!
Thanks for popping by.
Andy and I will be training over the rest of the year and raising money for BHF. We're hoping to raise £2000 - but we can't do it without your help.
Please donate and we'll keep in touch on our progress.
Remember - we're doing the easy bit but it can't be done without your support.
