My story

[p]Hi all, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p]As some of you may know this is my second attempt at the London Marathon raising money for the Co Op and Red Cross[/p][p]Last year unfortunaly 3 weeks before I was due to run I picked up and injury in the form of medial tibial stress syndrome otherwise know as shin splints in both legs, after consulting with the Dr I was advised not to run or if I did I could never run again, so a year on and keeping a relatively lower profile with training and advertising this year I now have had the go ahead from the Dr to compete in this years race, so for the past 4 months I have been training about 10-15 hours week to complete this task hopefully without injury [/p][p]So on 23rd April 2017 its happening, I will be part of Team Co Op running with 4 other runners in the organisation for  British Red Cross in one of the last big events of the partnership, so 3 weeks, dig deep for this last push [/p][p]Also if your in 1 AS the week before the race you could be lucky enough to see a large Picture of me in the Entrance[/p][p]Below is the small print  [/p][p] Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
