My story

[p]So finally after 5 years of failed attempts I have secured a place in the London Marathon. As many of you will know it has been a dream of mine to complete a marathon and I’ve always wanted that marathon to be London….its pretty likely this will be a one off unless I beat Mo Farah!!!![/p][p]I have been lucky enough to secure a charity place with Youth Sport Trust and am fully committed to raising as much as I can for this great cause. They work with kids of all ages to promote involvement in sport, play and physical activity to give our next generation of kids the opportunity to get active. As I have discovered through my own running experience physical activity not only promotes a healthy body but also a healthy mind and in today’s world this can only be a positive thing given the way children today are subject to huge changes to technology and subsequent decline of physical activity. Whether kids are the next Mo Farah, Rebecca Adlington or David Chester this message is so important whether to simply get out and active or be the next Olympic champion.[/p][p]Please give as generously as you can as I’m sure my knees and back will only ever let me complete in one marathon.[/p][p]As a bit of an extra incentive to get sponsors I will be offering prizes that i have managed to blag from friends and businesses along the way. The prize draw will be open to anyone that kindly sponsors me and will be done once I've completed the race. Updates to follow on this one regarding prizes.[/p][p]Thanks so much to everyone that has supported me and this great cause along the way....wish me luck.[/p][p]David x[/p]
