My story

[p]Two of my favourite things are working on intensive care and running marathons.[/p][p]I am attempting to break the world record for running a marathon dressed as a(n intensive care) doctor.[/p][p]In doing so I hope to raise awareness of intensive care and what these patients go through. I'm raising money for the intensive care foundation; they fund research to improve the outcomes of our sickest patients in hospital[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]UPDATE[/u][/b][/p][p]So I did 'The Big Half' dressed as an intensive care doctor - complete with a tracheostomy. Provisionally I broke the record but Guinness haven't made it official. Photos uploaded.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far. I can't wait until the big day...[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]POST MARATHON UPDATE[/u][/b][/p][p]Dear All, many thanks for all your contributions. The conditions for the marathon were rather brutal this year and as a result I didn't get the record I was after. I still manged a sub 3 hour time of 2hrs 58mins and I think a lot more people now know about intensive care and the foundation.[/p][p]I'm hoping I'll be given the half marathon record. If not, I'll just have to try again another time.[/p][p]Next marathon is just 3 weeks away but I'll be leaving scrubs and the lab coat at home![/p][p]Regards[/p]
