My story

[p]Hi Everyone,  [/p][p]Thank you for visiting my page. Well, [b]this was the big one with 16,000 runners and I did it! [/b]I ran the Reading Half Marathon on 2nd March for Latin Link - their office is in Reading - taking almost 11 minutes off last September's Tonbridge Half Marathon time. I achieved [b]a personal best time of 2hrs: 15 mins: 38 secs - over my 60th birthday! [/b] See photo on left. This beats my previous personal best time of 2hrs:15 mins:50 secs set in London in 2009, then a pre prostate time - [b]by just 12 seconds! Sprinting the last 50 metres [/b]with spectators in the Majedski stadium roaring you on [b]made all the difference to obtaining a personal best time. [/b]All the hill and flat training, both floody and muddy, has paid off! [b] [/b][/p][p]I am very grateful for the thoughts and prayers not only that the weather would be good for running, but that I would be given the strength to do this. These have been answered![/p][p]As you may know, I work full-time representing Latin Link in the South of England. Latin Link members, mostly in Latin America, work with local Christians to meet diverse needs, from caring for street children to training church leaders; from supporting prisoners to generating employment opportunities. Meeting both practical and spiritual needs. To find out more about Latin Link just hover over the logo on the left.[/p][p]With both the World Cup and the Olympics happening in Brazil - both great for [b]putting Latin America more on the map [/b]- I have added my bit by doing something sporty for Latin Link! Through Virgin Money Giving, you can help the charity by sponsoring me knowing the money will go straight to Latin Link. If you pay tax in the UK, please choose gift aid - so that Latin Link gets extra, courtesy of Her Majesty's Inland Revenue.[/p][p][b]Please help me reach my £3,000 target.[/b] A friend has kindly agreed, on hearing about my personal best time, to [b]double his donation to Latin Link[/b]. I am encouraged. [/p][p]With many thanks for your support of [b]my personal best Reading Half Marathon run for Latin Link over my 60th birthday.[/b][/p][p]Jonathan[/p]
