Team story

[p][/p][p]Hi Everyone,  [/p][p]Thank you for visiting my page. Well, [b]this is the big one! [/b]I'm running the Reading Half Marathon for Latin Link - their office is in Reading - on 2nd March. [/p][p]There will be 16000 runners! It's a mostly flat course with just two hills - I have been up them in training! - so am aiming for [b]a personal best attempt of 2hrs: 15 mins[/b][b], [/b]needing to trim 11 minutes off last September's Tonbridge Half Marathon time, see photo on left. If I can achieve this, it will be in a post op. time - I had a major prostate operation in 2011 - and [b]over my 60th birthday! [/b]I have been training three times a week up and down the steep hills of Cowden near Edenbridge, and running on the flat from our home in Tonbridge to Tunbridge Wells and Penshurst - and back! I started half marathon running in 2008, and really enjoy it. [/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 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 personal best [b]R[/b][/b][b]eading Half Marathon run attempt for Latin Link over my 60th birthday.[/b][/p][p]Jonathan[/p][p][/p][lt]p class="sponsor-info"[gt][b][span=color: #000000;][lt]span id="sponsorNameID5904235" class="sponsor-name"[gt]Andy[/span] £100.00 [span=color: #ff0000;](+ £25.00 giftaid) [/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p][b] [/b][p][b][span=color: #000000;]24.09.13[/span][/b] [span=color: #000000;][lt]span id="sponsorNameID5896240" class="sponsor-name"[gt]Dilys[/span] £20.00 [span=color: #ff0000;](+ £5.00 giftaid) [/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][b] [/b][p][b][span=color: #000000;]23.09.13[/span] [/b][lt]span id="messageToEditID5896240" class="normalText"[gt]Well done![lt]/span[gt][/p][p][/p][p][/p]
