My story

[p]Hi. May I start off thanking you for visiting my fundraising page. [/p][p]I am thrilled to be running the Virgin London Marathon 2019 for the Animal Heath Trust Charity.[/p][p]Whilst I do not have a dog, cat or believe it or not a horse! many members of my family, friends and work collegues do. I ran the London Marathon in 2017 for the Heads Together Charity which I really enjoyed doing. [/p][p]I'm running in the City of Norwich half marathon on Sunday 7th April as part of my training so I should have a good idea of a rough finish time for the marathon then![/p][p]I wanted to support a totally different charity this time and fairly local to me, Animal Heath Trust ticks all the box's. [/p][p][br][/p][p][u]Training Update![/u][/p][p]Week 1 = 31 miles[/p][p]Week 2 = 32.6 miles[/p][p]Week 3 = 36.2 miles including a personal best half marathon time 1.32.32![/p][p]Week 4 = 21 miles[/p][p]Week 5 = 44.4 miles (massive week as couldn't get out much the previous week, great fun running on ice!!)[/p][p]Week 6 = 40.4 miles[/p][p]Week 7 = 43.6 miles (inc 20 mile long run)[/p][p]Week 8 = has been a bit of a struggle as had a lot of pain in upper right leg still squeezed in 20 plus miles at an easier pace. Should be fighting for next week 🀞🀞[/p][p]Week 9 = 50.4 mile week (including a 21 mile long run)[/p][p]Week 10 = 31.6 mile week[/p][p]Week 11 = 42.9 mile week[/p][p]Week 12 = 39 mile week[/p][p]Week 13 = 41 mile week[/p][p]Week 14 = 28 mile week (inc 1.24h half marathon PB!)[/p][p]Week 15 = 23 mile week[/p][p][br][/p][p]Please see below some of the great things that are done at the Animal Health Trust:[/p][p]The Animal Health Trust exists to fight disease and injury in animals. Thanks to their pioneering work improving diagnosis, treatment and prevention, horses, dogs and cats are living healthier, happier lives – in the UK and across the world. [/p][p][b]Disease[/b] and [b]injury [/b]continue to be the biggest [b]threats[/b] to animals. The [b]Animal Health Trust[/b] exists to combat these.[/p][p]We aim to improve the [b]health[/b] and [b]welfare[/b] of horses, dogs and cats through [b]research[/b], [b]clinical services[/b] and [b]education[/b].[/p][p]Through [b]research[/b] we develop new and better ways to [b]diagnose[/b] a problem, stop it from happening and, where we can, [b]cure[/b] it.[/p][p]Our [b]clinical services[/b] offer specialist referral facilities to vets when cases are too complex to be managed in general practice. We have two clinics – one for [b]dogs[/b] and [b]cats[/b], the other for [b]horses[/b], dealing with noses to tails and everything in between.[/p][p][b]Education[/b] is a vital part of our work. We share our knowledge with vets internationally to benefit horses, dogs and cats all around the world. Our clinics are staffed by [b]world-leading experts[/b] and young vets training to be our world-leading experts of the future.[/p][p]We are [b]innovative[/b]. We are [b]passionate[/b].
