My story

[p]I have been a member of Harlow Running Club for many years and 2019 will mark the 25th time that I have run the London Marathon. I would like to make it a special occasion to raise some vital funds for St. Clare, a service that I have supported over a number of years, having seen and experienced the invaluable work that is undertaken by the Hospice. [/p][p]My time target for the run is 3.45.00 as it was in 2018, when I was quite a bit slower that I had planned, but hopefully in 2019 it will be cooler that last year. In January I ran the Fred Hughes 10 (miles) at St. Albans, finishing in a slightly disappointing time of 1.19.42. The first eight and a half weeks of training have been going well and I am now just past the halfway point towards the marathon. On 3rd March I ran the Essex 20 Miles race and, very pleasingly, was well inside my target time, finishing in 2.41.17. The other three races in March went well - the Colchester 15 in 2.00.46, the Oakley 20 in 2.46.11 and finally a quick run at the Braintree 5 in 37.03. [/p][p]I completed the marathon on 28th April, finishing in a satisfactory time of 3.48.10 and felt fairly fresh at the end. I feel that I could have run quicker, but was delayed by the sheer number of runners that caused me to slow at points as I could not overtake groups ahead. [/p][p]The Hospice provides an excellent supporting service to patients and their families in the West Essex and East Hertfordshire area and it does not receive all its finance from the government or the NHS, so is always looking to raise enough to keep its services operating. As an example of how your sponsorship would be used, £20.00 would pay for a one hour counselling session for a bereaved child delivered by a specialist child, young people and family therapist.[/p][p]So, if you are willing to sponsor me, please give generously, as your donations will be put to good use.
