My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]First – I would like to say a big thank you to all those that donated last year.  I managed to complete over 200 miles of events which included distances of 5 kilometer, 10 kilometer and 13.1 mile half marathons.  It was hard work. [/p][p]I would also like to say a big thank you to my family for their support.  I would not have been able to take part in these events without their help.  It’s not just me working hard to attempt these mad ideas for fundraising and I’d like everyone to know this.  [/p][p]This year’s challenge is much bigger.  Completing all those events last year was hard work.  How could I continue to earn your donations by entering running events and keep it a challenge?  I wanted to show that I’m working harder this year.  [/p][p]This year I have entered 5 Marathons (26.2 miles) and 2 Ultra’s (50 miles).  This takes the event mileage to over 300 miles for this year.  To run 26 miles only once is daunting but to attempt it 5 times in a year has got to be a challenge worth your hard earned pennies.  For those of you who don’t think 26 miles is far enough the Ultra’s will hopefully show I’m utterly bonkers!  [/p][p]For those who don’t know.  Up to the end of 2012 the most mileage in an event I had completed is 13.1 miles.  Milton Keynes Marathon in May 2013 will be my first attempt at marathon distance in an event.  [/p][p]It’s not going to be easy this year and I want to show that I’m going to earn every penny of donation towards the four charities I’ve selected this year.  [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
