My story

[p]Hello, in a few weeks I am running the London Marathon and I would love it if you would donate with gusto to the Liz Clarke-Saul Fund for Adamantinoma which is pioneering rare bone cancer research. I'm doing this in memory of my wife, Liz Clarke-Saul. Liz was re-diagnosed with Adamantinoma, an incredibly rare bone cancer, in 2018 and after two years of living with an incurable disease she died last July. [/p][p]This is my second go. The first was stymied by the lockdown last year when every marathon was cancelled. At the time I had been training to do four marathons in four weekends. I wanted to raise lots of money for Liz's fund at the Bone Cancer Research Trust and I wanted Liz to be proud of me when I knew that time was running out for me to do a long-distance race with her waiting for me at the finish line.[/p][p]Liz loved my marathon training as it gave her an athletic outlet, she had retired from her cycling career after her diagnosis but my training runs allowed her to obsess over my training plans, nag me about the importance of stretching before running and it was with great glee that she prepared ice baths for me when I returned from my long runs on weekends. I never got to run those marathons, and Liz never got to watch me.[/p][p]I'm not as fit as I was this time a year ago (a year of grief in lockdown and a premium Deliveroo account will do that to you) but I think I can still finish this marathon. Thank you so much for reading this, and for your donations. It meant the world to Liz that people wanted to donate to her fund and it still means so much to me. Thank you.
