My story

[p]After a couple of failed public ballot entries, I'm very fortunate to have gained a charity place through EIC to run the London Marathon in 2018. I'm a big believer in all charities doing good so here I am, pledging to raise £1,750 to enable the EIC to continue the work they do and in return, I tick off a bucket list opportunity. It seems a win-win, right? (So, maybe win-win is an over-zealous term to use).[/p][p]As far as my "athletic" career goes, it's not very "athletic". I thought I was slightly mad turning my hand to a triathlon but quickly remembered that you get to sit on a bike for at least 90 minutes of that. Instead, in 24 days time I'll be pacing around the roads of London for 26.2 miles and as with anything I do, I've set myself a goal time to finish. If it doesn't challenge you then it doesn't change you...[/p][p]So I'm swapping my regular Gin & Tonics for a lot of lycra and sweat in aid of achieving the £1,750 towards a worthy cause. Virgin Money Giving is a not-for-profit organisation and will claim gift aid on EIC's behalf.[/p][p]All support is appreciated, whether it's a fiver or joining me for a run, and if you're free on Sunday 22nd April, I'll see you at the finish at The Mall. I promise the G&T's will be on me![/p]
