My story

[p]By the time you read this, I may well be running round the streets of New York, as on Sunday, 3rd November, I'm tackling the NYC Marathon. 26.2 miles! I'm quite terrified, but I've had fantastic training from my good friend and run coach, Kerry Sutton and I'm hoping to raise some money for Alzheimer's Research (my mother sadly has been enduring this awful disease for the past 15 years) and also for Bloodwise, which funds research into blood cancers. That's the charity I ran for in the only other marathon I've ever done - San Diego back in 2004. So the good news is that I only ask for charity donations every 15 years....so if you can support me now, I won't ask again for a long, long time! Anything you can spare will be much appreciated and will keep my spirits up! Thanks so much.... kags xx[/p]
