My story

[p]Hi, it's Jon here and I'm asking for your help.[/p][p]I'm lucky enough to have a place in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon, and I'll be running in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.[/p][p]This will be my second marathon. I ran my first in Liverpool last year and it was a fantastic experience, but I'm hoping London will top that.[/p][p]I'm looking forward to achieving the twin aims of basking in the adoration of a thousands-strong crowd and raising money for a very deserving cause.[/p][p]The offer of a place came rather late and unexpectedly, and I've had a little bit of catching up to do in terms of training.[/p][p]So any support you can give will be greatly appreciated and might just help motivate me as I pound the unforgiving streets of Norwich and reacquaint myself with the fly-tipping hotspots of its south-western fringe.[/p][p]More importantly, it will help young people with cancer, and I can't think of many more worthy causes than that.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p]
