Story

This is a story of 3 parts:

Part 1 - Back in the early 90's my Dad challenged himself to run all the roads in Cardiff; and except for two roads (that both had dogs that chased him when he tried to enter them) succeeded. He was a lifetime runner having competed for Wales and Great Britain, whilst in later life coaching and team managing.. 

Part 2 - Roll on to 2017, and I signed up for my first ever race; namely the local Swindon Half Marathon. I entered as a way of improving my fitness and supported a great local event. However pounding the same roads is boring; so why not run every road and try to emanate my Dad (albeit in Swindon not Cardiff).

Part 3 - I chose to support Fertility Network, as Lou and I went through 5 long years struggling to conceive, and with the fantastic support and amazing medical procedures Jack arrived safe and sound in April 2017.


Please give generously and help a charity supporting more people than you would imagine that struggle to conceive naturally.

Paul
