My story

[p]Thanks for looking at this page. I am taking part in the London Marathon, raising money for the Royal British Legion. My Grandad's brother, Tommy was blown up on the Somme in 1916. My dad and uncles served through WWII. My son in Law, Adam is a serving officer in the Army. The Legion supports ex - servicemen who have kept us safe and is a very worthy cause.[/p][p]I am 65 next birthday, and two years ago couldn't have run for a bus, so taking part in THE marathon is a personal challenge, a tribute to Tommy Cox and all who served, and support for an organisation that does great work.[/p][p]Well I did it - not fast, not pretty but I completed the course in 6 hours 11 minutes. I'll need to do it next year to improve my time[/p][p]Many thanks to all who support the Legion[/p][p] [/p][p]Dave[/p]
