My story

[p]I hate this bit. The part where I tell you a sad story and you feel sorry for me and so donate some money. I’ll tell you a brief overview if you promise not to feel sorry for me and only donate because you like my determination :)[/p][p]In short... last year, out of nowhere, I got ill. Turned out, my kidneys were being absolute idiots. Had 3 operations. All were unsuccessful. And now I live my life in and out of hospital. But don’t worry, it’s cool. I’m learning to live with it all. Kind of. Just a few months after my operations, I returned to running. In fact, started my own very successful run group for beginners (even recently won an award for it). However, my own long distance running days are coming to an end. And this is me bowing out of marathons in style :)[/p][p]Of course, I won’t quit running, I just won’t be running as far post April...[/p][p]I’m sure I don’t need to explain why I’ve chosen to run for Kidney Research. I’m lucky that I can still run right now, so it’s only right that I run for those who aren’t as lucky as me.[/p][p]Sad story over. Please feel free to donate below. Thank you kindly :)[/p][p][br][/p]
