My story

[span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.5520000457764px;][p]Hi Everyone,  [/p] [p]Thank you for visiting my page. Well, [b]this was the big one! [/b]I completed the [b]Reading Half Marathon[/b] for Latin Link - their office is in Reading - on 22nd March, in a time of [b]2hrs 19mins 52 secs. I am pictured on the left with my finishing medal![/b][/p] [p]There were 18,000 runners, with hundreds of people lining the route, cheering you on! I was aiming for [b]a personal best of 2hrs 15 mins 37 secs. Given my wife's recent major operation and not being able to train as much as I would have liked,[/b] [b]I was very pleased with the result!  [/b]I started half marathon running in 2008, and really enjoy it. [/p] [p]As you may know, I represent Latin Link in the South of England. Latin Link members, mostly in Latin America, work with local Christians to meet both practical and spiritual needs, from caring for street children to training church leaders; from supporting prisoners to generating employment opportunities. To find out more about Latin Link just hover over the logo on the left.[/p] [p]With the Olympics happening in Brazil next year - [b]putting Latin America more on the map [/b]- I am adding 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]With many thanks for your support of [b]my successful Reading Half Marathon run for Latin Link.[/b][/p] [p]Jonathan[/p][/span]
