My story

[p]Hi, thank you for visiting my page.[/p][p]I only started running in April 2014, and have challenge myself to complete the London Marathon, effectively 1 year since I started running. I have recently completed my first half Marathon so not completely mad, just have to do it twice over. [/p][p]I am running in aid of the charity Health Poverty Action. This is a really good charity who work to improve the health of poor and marginalised communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America. They tackle the root causes of poverty and ill health, working in partnership with the world’s poorest people to grow local expertise in health services and disease prevention so that communities can survive and thrive. They also campaign to change the policies and practices that create and sustain poverty and poor health.[/p][p]If you are able to support me and this worth while charity it would be much appreciated. just think of me on those cold, dark wet winter morning training in preperation. April 26th may seem a long way off but I have lots of training to do and a significnat target to hit so really appreciate your support.[/p][p]My road to London[/p][p]Lords Hill 10 Mile 2nd November 1hr 31min 28 sec PB 9:09 per mile[/p][p]Gosport Half Martahon 16th November 2hr 4min 4 sec PB 9:28 per mile[/p][p]Stubbington 10 km 18th January 56: 17 PB 9:00 per mile[/p][p]Stonehenge Stomp 30 km 25th January 4 hrs 22[/p][p]Bramley 20 mile 15th February 3 hrs 44 mins 28 secs PB[/p][p]Reading Half 22nd March 2 hrs 15 mins 32 sec[/p][p]London Marathon 26th April 4 hrs 55 mins 52 Sec PB[/p][p][/p][p]Check back for progress[/p][p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
