My story

[p]I have tried to run a marathon a couple of times now but luck doesn't seem to be on my side. There was the ash cloud from the eruption of Eyyafyallayöküll in Iceland which prevented this from happening for the Vienna marathon as all flights were cancelled and the unfortunate events around Hurricane Sandy in 2012 meant the NYC Marathon was also cancelled. I am not sure if this is a blessing or a curse but I am determined to make it 3rd time lucky on home soil by running the London Marathon in 2019. [/p][p]I have also since these failed attempts become a father and have two wonderful boys Ben and Max who mean the world to me. When I think of the love, care and laughter my boys receive it breaks my heart to think there are children out there that are suffering from cruelty and currently living unhappy lives. Every child should be smiling and laughing and running around without a care in the world and it is the tireless work of the NSPCC that might one day allow this to become a reality. I am going to do everything I can to raise as much money to support the work they do and ask you kindly to dig deep and contribute as to the cause. I will also be matching any donations up to £1500 from my company Walter James to top of the fundraising. [/p][p]As this is my first marathon, my initial aim is to just get to the finish but I will be starting a intensive 6 month training plan from the start of November to make sure I can run a respectable time. It is the donations and money received that honestly will motivate me to get up and run on those dark winter nights! [/p]
