My story

[p][b]BUSTed – Manchester, Stockholm, Florence (and a few other points in between)[/b][/p][p]Folks: if you're reading this page, odds are you know why I'm doing this running challenge (mid-life crisis aside!) and why I'm raising money for the [url=http://www.bustbristol.co.uk/]Breast Cancer Unit Support Trust (BUST)[/url], the Bristol-based charity “founded by patients for patients to support the work of the Bristol Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital”.[/p][p]Since its formation in the 1990s, BUST has raised more than £1.7 million to fund innovation in the diagnosis and treatment of breast disease at the Bristol Breast Care Centre. The centre saves lives on a daily basis and is one of the best adverts I can think of for a public health service that puts patients and their families first.[/p][p]To support the Breast Care Centre’s life-saving work, I’ve been pounding the mean streets of Chipping Sodbury day in, day out since the start of the year in a bid to get myself “into shape” for some serious running – i.e. a 236-mile mash-up of six half-marathons and six marathons in 12 months. The scores-on-the-doors (as of 31 July) and my upcoming “races” for the rest of the year are shown below…[/p][p]- 27 January: Heaton Park Half Marathon (Manchester) [b]2hr 6min [/b][/p][p]-[b] [/b]22 February: Tel Aviv Half Marathon [b]2hr 2min[/b][/p][p]-[b] [/b]24 March: Wilmslow Half Marathon [b]2hr 1min [/b][/p][p]-[b] [/b]28 April: Stirling Scottish Marathon [b]4hr 27min[/b][/p][p]- 12 May: Geneva Marathon [b]4hr 48min[/b][/p][p]- 1 June: Stockholm Marathon [b]4hr 54min[/b][/p][p]- 28 July: Heaton Park Half Marathon II [b]2hr 3min [/b][/p][p]- 24 August: Severn Bridge Half Marathon[/p][p]- 8 September: Stockport (Hatters) Half Marathon[/p][p]- 19 October: Baltimore Marathon[/p][p]- 24 November: Florence Marathon[/p][p]- 22 December: Portsmouth Marathon[/p][p]Many thanks for all your support so far – financial and otherwise. It really is appreciated.[/p][p]This page will remain open for donations until year-end. [/p][p]Thanks again and all the best to you and yours. Joe[/p]
