My story

[p]Sometimes we go looking for adventure; at other times, adventure finds us![/p][p]I had never planned to run anything more than a 10k but, when my friend Suzie said she was applying for the London Marathon as part of a fundraising challenge (see more below!), I decided I would apply on the off-chance that I got a place. My plan was to transfer the place to her if her application was unsuccessful. How noble! Suzie didn't get a place. I did - and discovered, to my horror, that they cannot be transferred. Faced with the dilemma of refusing the place (as most sane people would do), deferring the place (and thus having 17 months to train - or 12 to procrastinate and 5 to train) or accepting the challenge - I decided it was at least worth starting the training.[/p][p]Now, I'm making a public commitment to keep on training, and to run this marathon - and I'm asking you to make it worthwhile. I hope to raise £100 for every mile I run and if you contribute even a tenner towards that, I'll be very grateful.[/p][p]Why am I supporting the Beatson? Those of you who know my recent story will appreciate that the Beatson has featured significantly. Having had breast cancer twice (in 2015 and 2018), I've spent a fair chunk of time receiving treatment and care from the amazing staff at this Centre. I don't like going there - but I'm glad that it exists. Doing this run is my way of saying "Thank you and God bless you" to the staff, and is a message of support to a couple of my dear friends who are receiving care there just now.[/p][p]I hope you never have to receive cancer treatment but, if you do, places like the Beatson make a difference. I also hope you never do anything as foolish as entering a race that will near kill you in the effort but, if you do, I hope you make it worthwhile![/p][p]God has been good to me. I can run (after a fashion) and I'm grateful. Please give generously.[/p][p]Love Julie[/p][p]By the way, Suzie is running the Manchester Marathon - and the story as to why she is raising money for the Beatson can be found here [url=http://www.justgiving.com/Suzie-Wong-turns-40?utm_id=26&fbclid=IwAR36XZXZqGEdiSi37quLcly3eNmCgvn6-HxfMAn50Mo0A86Sdtm5wai_WXs]http://www.justgiving.com/Suzie-Wong-turns-40?utm_id=26[/url][/p][p][br][/p]
