My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]Update - I finished the London Marathon in a time of 4 hours 17 minutes 32 seconds.  Not quite the sub 4-hour finish I was aiming for, but an injury at 12 miles meant I ran the second half slower than planned.[/p][p]Many thanks for all your donations and support - I couldn't have done it without you.[/p][p]Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and I have chosen to run the London Marathon to support research into it for the following reasons. Two close family members have been diagnosed and successfully treated. But just before Christmas we received the news that a close friend has been diagnosed too.[/p][p]She is in her mid-40s, has a husband and young family, has already undergone surgery and is facing chemo and more surgery.  Cancer does not discriminate in who it affects, but it seems particularly cruel that a young woman in the prime of life, with her children's future to look forward to should be afflicted.  This is why I have decided to run for Breast Cancer Campaign.  Breast Cancer Campaign carry out and fund research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer, so that other women and families will not have to suffer its effects.[/p][p]Please help to tackle breast cancer by sponsoring me whatever you can spare.[/p][p]It's easy to sponsor me through Virgin Money Giving, a not for profit organisation. Donations will be quickly processed and passed to Breast Cancer Campaign, along with gift aid where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Simon[/p][lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="overflow: hidden; height: 1px; width: 1px; position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 44px;"[gt][url=http://strava.com/athletes/5853180/badge]ollow me on[/url][url=http://strava.com/athletes/5853180/badge][/url][lt]/div[gt][lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="overflow: hidden; font-size: 11px; text-decoration: none; height: 1px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; width: 1px; background-image: url(http://badges.strava.com/logo-strava-echelon.png); white-space: nowrap; background-repeat: no-repeat; position: absolute; background-position: 10px 50%; color: #ffffff; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-top: 5px; padding-left: 30px; left: -10000px; display: inline-block; top: 44px; padding-right: 10px; background-color: #fc4c02; border-radius: 3px;"[gt][span=display: inline-block; padding: 5px 10px 5px 30px; border-radius: 3px; background-image: url(http://badges.strava.com/logo-strava-echelon.png); background-color: #fc4c02; background-position: 10px 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat;][lt]img style="margin-left: 2px; vertical-align: text-bottom;" src="http://badges.strava.com/logo-strava.png" alt="Strava" width="51" height="13" /[gt][/span][lt]/div[gt]
