My story

[p]September 29th 2019, my first and possibly last attempt at the magic 26.2 miles. Berlin marathon, a fast, flat course I'm told!!!!! What does fast mean??[/p][p]I am running this marathon for the Cameron Bespolka and part of an incredible group also running in his memory. [/p][p]The details of the charity on his behalf can be found: [url=https://www.cameronbespolka.com/]https://www.cameronbespolka.com/[/url] [/p][p]My memories and inspiration for running in Berlin are a quite personal. [/p][p]Cameron, along with his triplet siblings, Nicholas and Megan, plus younger sister Sienna are a fun loving bunch.....that is until we'd meet regularly on the families tennis court (me being the coach). Cameron and Nick would often share lessons and both lovely players. Nick had a swagger and looked confident. Cameron, quieter, focused, relaxed. The boys would warm up, I would organise some drills, we would do some technical work, then we would put the work into practice with some match play. The mind games would start and Nick would try hard to wind up his brother at the other end of the court. The mild mannered red head Cameron would transform into a fiery, crazed, attacking player and usually beat his brother. We would walk back off court an hour or so later and Cameron would transform back into Mr Cool and Mr Relaxed, leaving Nick still seething. I'm not sure many people outside of the family got to see this side of Cameron. It makes me so very happy to have known him and had the opportunity to have collected these memories. [/p][p]I have had the pleasure of working with the Bespolka family for years and still see them regularly. They are a truly wonderful family. They have showed immense courage and resolve over the past years and running has become an important part of some of their lives. Being outdoors in the countryside, with nature are places Cameron loved to be. [/p][p]He is HUGELY missed but I, we, will do our part in "Running for Cameron" in Berlin and raise as much as we can to support the incredible charity. [/p]
