Hello Everyone

Thankyou for visiting my fundraising page I'm RAN New York City Marathon for the Meningitis Research Foundation. In 2007 a young boy of 11, Harry Mills of Marlow, was lost to this awful illness. Also last year my God-daughter also contracted it, luckily she was hospitalised & very fortunately recovered. So please donate to this worthy cause.


Well I did it - I REALLY did it!!

All my training (4 x per week) WORKED!! Since the summer of 2006 I've done: 7 half-marathons, heaps of training runs of 6, 8, 12, 18 miles and even a 20 mile once! 

The race was fantastic, awesome, the most challenging thing I have EVER done - but SO rewarding!! I am still on cloud nine!!

PLEASE sponsor me as this NYC marathon was the hardest thing I HAVE EVER DONE!  

Lots of love & THANKYOU everso much for logging onto my page.
