My story

[p][span=font-kerning: none;]Hi,[lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]The London Marathon has always been on my bucket list and when 5 of my running friends said they wanted to enter the race in 2018, I felt having the girls by my side through the cold winter training runs is the best encouragement I could have. My next challenge was to find a charity close to my heart, I will only ever do one marathon (that’s the line I’m sticking to!!) so it needs to be a cause I really believe in. [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]I have managed to get a charity place with the The Brain Research Trust and the reason is because of a dear friend, Paul Dickson.[lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]Paul introduced Mark to me all those years ago. He was the one who encouraged me to start running and even though Paul could complete a half marathon in 1 hour 30 minutes with his eyes shut he always listened and offered his advice and support to me. We ran The Great North Run together (well, not exactly at the same pace, but we completed the same race!) in 2010.[lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]I can still remember the time and place when I took the call and heard the news that Paul had a brain tumour. He had surgery the following day and it was then a waiting game to hear if the tumour was benign or malignant. Unfortunately it was cancerous. Paul fought the illness with a strength I didn’t know was possible, he was so determined to beat it and get back to normality. We promised Paul once he was better, me, Mark and our friend Shane would all complete a half marathon together. Sadly this day never arrived and Paul lost the battle in July 2016. Instead of us both running a half together I’m going to run a full marathon of 26.2 miles for us both. [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]Anything you can give to sponsor me is so greatly appreciated.[lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;] [lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]Jen[lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-kerning: none;]x[/span][/p]
