I have been running for many years, I enjoy the challenge and the friendship of club running. I also love helping others with their running. I have supported the Berkshire MS Centre on numerous occasions, they are a very important facility for those with MS in the Berkshire area, and have helped and continue to help very dear friends of mine.
Its not just the race, its the training thats hard work, so think of all those miles run in the cold, the gym and swim sessions and the cycling to work! Thankyou for supporting me and the Centre.
