My story

[p]So I’ve now completed the Brighton Marathon In 4 hours 43 mins. Officially my fastest yet! It was a great day, perfect weather, brilliant crowds and atmosphere and (apart from miles 14-18) I enjoyed it!! But why was I doing it ,,, [/p][p]As some of you may know, my mum was diagnosed with Parkinson's about 12 years ago. She has managed fantastically well until the last couple of years, when things have become much more of a struggle. [/p][p]My dad is now doing an amazing job, supporting her on a day-to-day basis, and the local Parkinson's support group in Oxford have also become an increasingly important lifeline, offering advice, research talks, 'Dance for Parkinson's' and other highlights. I have therefore decided to combine my occasional irrational desire to enter another marathon with actually doing this for a good cause! I am raising money for the Oxford branch of Parkinson's UK. The money raised will fund local research into the causes and treatments for Parkinson's disease, and provide on-going and much needed advice and social support for people struggling with this debilitating condition. [/p][p]I have been running in rain, wind and snow in training. I hope I've managed to convince you to please give generously - Thanks - Kathy Greenwood [/p]
