My story

[p]After nearly a forty year on-off relationship with running I have finally decided that now is the time to run my first marathon; spurred to do so by the memory of my friend Ed, who sadly passed away from cancer a few years back. Before passing, Ed introduced me to the charity Kidney Cancer UK which was supporting him through his final months. Since then I have done my best to return the charity's kindness through my support and all the funds I raise will go to this great cause.[/p][p]I have included a picture below of Ed with his two boys. This is the last one of them together before Ed began to look unwell. As you can see he was too young to be taken. Ed was a very fit and athletic man who competed in Iron Man competitions, so while a marathon might seem like a great feat to attempt, in reality it is just an EdLite. So in tribute to a better man than me, I shall attempt a lesser thing than he.[/p][p]Please give generously to this great cause, Kidney Cancer UK and make my efforts to haul my middle-age spread through the streets of London worthwhile.[/p]
