My story

[p]UPDATE: I did it :) In four hours, eight minutes and 59 seconds to be precise.[/p][p]Read how, here:[url=http://www.thecomet.net/comet-life/london_marathon_2015_realising_a_dream_hand_in_hand_1_4051424] http://www.thecomet.net/comet-life/london_marathon_2015_realising_a_dream_hand_in_hand_1_4051424  [/url][/p][p]Thanks to everyone for their donations and support, it means the world.[/p][p]Nick x[/p][p]BACK STORY:[/p][p]So in April 2013 I lined up in Greenwich Park ready to fulfil my dream – completing the London Marathon. Training had gone well but something out of my control – the weather – proved my downfall, literally. Quite simply I did not drink enough on the day and, realising too late, collapsed at around the 17.5-mile mark from dehydration.[/p] [p]Fortunately a team of St John Ambulance volunteers were on hand to come to my aid. Initially my temperature was at a dangerously high level but after a number of hours in a medical tent I was well enough to get a sweeper bus to the finish and collect my belongings.[/p] [p]Travelling on that bus I remember feeling a real sense of disappointment that after six months of dedication I had not got a medal or finishing time to show for it.[/p] [p]But after a year off I am more determined than ever to get that medal in 2015. And who better to raise money for than the first aid charity which, in my eyes, saved my life.[/p] [p]So here I am, again, asking for your generous donations to help me fulfil my marathon dream. The difference this time is I will be crossing the finish line come April 26 – and that’s a promise.[/p][p]Nick x[/p][p]P.S And just to make sure I'm putting the hours and miles in, you can follow my progress via my blog: http://www.thecomet.net/comet-life/nick-s-marathon-blog [/p][p]*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.[/p]
