My story

[p]Let's face it, the last 18 months have been difficult for everyone. Covid-19 has changed the way we have lived, worked, and played over the last 15 months. [/p][p]In 2019, I signed up for 'The Wall' - an ultramarathon in June 2020 starting in Carlisle, running alongside Hadrian's Wall to my hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne. A mere 70 miles! I'd picked this challenge so that my Mum would be able to see me finish one of my crazy challenges in person, rather than watching an online stream to catch a fleeting glimpse as I crossed a distant finishing line.[/p][p]In December 2019, my Mother-in-law passed away suddenly and as the Covid lockdown hit, my Mum was taken into hospital after being poorly for some time. She battled hard but lost her fight in August 2020 to acute myeloid leukaemia and pneumonia. The Wall 2020 was cancelled - none of us made the finishing line.[/p][p]But 2021 offers hope. Restrictions are gradually lifting, and vaccines (thanks Science!) are helping to protect the vulnerable and return us to our new normality. Never again will a simple hug be taken for granted![/p][p]The Wall returns on Saturday 19th June. I've logged over 100 runs so far this year, covering over 1350km and about 13,000m of climbing. I've worn out at least 3 pairs of trainers and know every path in Chatelherault like the back of my hands... I'm as ready as I'll ever be.[/p][p]I don't normally fundraise on my mad adventures, but this is a special occasion. If you could donate a few pounds then it would be warmly received by St. Andrew's Hospice - they provide specialist palliative care to people with life-limiting illnesses. This wonderful care does not come cheaply - they need to raise £88,000 per week to help, so please dig deep and I promise I'll dig deep on Saturday 19th June to cross that finishing line xxx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
