My story

[p][url=https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/iomKCrk8BFylnX0I4zNV1?domain=rpmf.org.uk]Grant Thornton continues tradition of "Running for Ron" - RPMF[/url] is my interview with one of the aspiring athletes on behalf of RPMF.[/p][p]In the midst of all that is going on in the world, I thought I should do my bit and challenge myself to do something that I have never done before. So I made that crazy mid-life crisis decision of putting my name in to run the marathon. And with the Olympics on, I felt compelled to support The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund, which does an excellent job in providing funding for young athletes with great potential. RPMF supported over 70% of Team GB athletes in the Tokyo Olympics and each and every medal winner has received grants from RPMF (see Keely Hodkinson quote below). [/p][p]Based on how I felt after my gruelling training sessions, I feel like I have worked very hard to get ready for the marathon ...... and also promise never to do it again! To give me that extra motivation to run those training miles and the 26 miles on 3 October, I would be hugely grateful if you can please help the next generation of young athletes who will do Team GB proud in years to come with a donation to The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund. [/p][p]I feel like I am just about on target for a 4h marathon and I would be hugely proud if I can make that time. [/p][p]5 Sep update - thanks to all who have donated. It is keeping me going on - I did a big 32.5km run today and was shattered but could scrape into 4 hours so still on target! [/p][p]30 Sep update - have been enjoying the tapering runs as much nicer to do those than the gruelling long ones. Big day is near now and was delighted to have been interviewed by RPMF – link above if you want to read more about my run and see some embarrassing pictures of my anguish at a recent training run!
