Team story

[p][b][i]Wow- what a day![/i][/b] The streets were lined with thousands of people who shouted encouragement all the way around. Incredible bands and DJs added the music.[/p][p]In some sections, the wall of noise was quite overwhelming. I admit to welling up a few times as I took the time to read the back of other runner’s vests- people taking on this challenge in memory of lost loved ones- some just taken too young.[/p][p]A few personal highlights: being overtaken twice by Jesus, running barefoot and carrying a huge cross; an 8 ft dragon reacting to someone in the crowd saying ‘come on dinosaur’..... “I’m a bloody dragon!”; People of all races, creeds and colours joining up to demonstrate all that is Great in this Country.[/p][p]Steve and I have been blown away by the number of supportive messages we’ve received. We are also humbled by the number of individual sponsors that have helped to raise a fantastic amount for such a very worthy local cause.[/p][p]We’ll share a few more pictures shortly.[/p][p]Massive thank you all x[/p][p][b][i]Update[/i][/b]: to follow our progress LIVE, please download the Official Virgin Money London Marathon App below, our race numbers are [b]37164[/b] and [b]37165[/b].

Huge thanks to everyone for your very kind support so far.[/p][p]Back in touch with a final/ wrap up update on Sunday afternoon (or possibly Monday morning!)[/p][p]See you on the other side. :-)[/p][p]—————————[/p][p]Nick & Steve are running the London Marathon in aid of the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. [/p][p]Steve is a member of Shropshire Shufflers, regularly taking part in the Park Run held in The Quarry each Saturday in Shrewsbury, as well as completing around 50 kilometres road work each week in serious and structured training. [/p][p]Nick, however, is taking a slightly different and more laid back approach and began his training through a 16-week internet-based scheme in January! Having completed the same marathon ten years ago, Nick hopes to beat his previous time of 5 hours and 41 minutes. The charity offers support to cancer sufferers and their families.[/p][p]Nick, commented: “Even though I made a later start with my training, I am very serious indeed about the event itself and consider myself very fortunate to gain an entry place as it is always heavily oversubscribed. “The Lingen Davies Cancer Fund is an amazing local charity supporting many people with equipment and backing, both for sufferers during and after treatment and helping reduce the effects on family and friends when most needed. “As work colleagues there is obviously a lot of competitive banter going around the office which all adds to the build up and excitement, Steve is a far better runner than me and is aiming for a time of four hours so I will be delighted to stagger home with a time of four hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds if possible!”[/p]
