My story

[p][b][u]Baker's dozen to take on the Virgin Money London Marathon[/u][/b][/p][p]Ian here from the 2015 series of the Great British Bake Off... swapping my fragrant bakes for a pair of fragrant trainers. [/p][p]This year I'm honoured to be part of the Baker's Dozen marathon team competing in the 2018 London Marathon.[/p][p]https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/news-media/latest-news/item/baker-s-dozen-to-take-on-the-virgin-money-london-marathon/[/p][p]I can't deny it but one of the things I enjoy doing is running... so why on earth sponsor me?! First of all it's obviously for a very good cause - Great Ormond Street Hospital. Secondly, also obviously, a marathon is a flipping long way and having done one 5 years ago, I swore I would never do another so quite frankly, I'm not really going to enjoy it that much![/p][p]Many years ago my mum trained to be a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital so I was brought up hearing about the amazing work they do there. Now as a parent myself, I feel happy to see my kids get better after having some paracetamol so I can only imagine the amazing work that Great Ormond Street can do. On average every day 618 children come to the hospital and thus to help them carry on their incredible work they need to raise about £100 million per year... that's a whole heap of cash and thus if I can run / plod / stumble my way around 26.2 miles of London streets it feels like a a small price to pay.[/p]
