On the 15[sup]th[/sup] September 2013 I completed the world’s biggest half marathon the Great North Run, I went back to the place where it all started, the place where I decided to change my life, my fight for survival and the great north run was the place to be, finishing in 2 hours 24 minutes and 36 seconds, this was now the start of the big challenge for 2014.[/span][/p] [p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]span style="font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"[gt]The 2014 Big Challenge[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p] [p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]I am now training to run on the 3[sup]rd[/sup] March 2014 the Silver Stone half marathon in 2 hours beating my time by 24 minutes then I will try to run the Sudbury 5 mile run in 40 minutes beating my time by 6 minutes. This just leaves me to take on the big one, The Virgin Money London Marathon 2014 on the 13[sup]th[/sup] April and I will train so hard and give it my all to beat my time by 1 hour, yes that’s right you heard right I want to beat my time by 1 hour, some people have said this is crazy and impossible and some have said and believe I truly can do this, and so I will, Why! You ask well because I can and what better way to do it than for a well-deserved charity Children with cancer uk, a charity that means so much to me, a charity who I have never seen support runners so much than I have when running for them in the last London Marathon, they supported me from the very beginning and so to be offered a place this year meant so much to me, Many of us are so lucky to breathe the air that we breathe with a life we live but for some it’s a different story especially the young ones who are not giving the chance to do what we do and enjoy life like we do, They are fight the deadly disease of cancer and not by choice, they are some of the bravest people in the world to accept their fight is there fight for their own survival.[/span][/p] [p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]Where some children are unfortunate to make it into their adult hood many are thanks to the continued support of children with cancer uk who supports the medical world to help fight this deadly disease and many have lived to tell such brave and wonderful stories and continue to live life to the full, this is what your sponsorship money is doing, its helping me to help towards saving a safe, a child’s life and I couldn’t think of anything more rewarding than that, me running for them and you the sponsors supporting me to do that with your hard earned cash and so I thank you deeply with all my heart.[/span][/p] [p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]Please follow my journey on my website, twitter page, face book page to keep up to date with Ady’s Journey. In 2014 I hope as announced on radio to release my book from Obese to the London marathon, my life my way. I have had a roller coaster of a life, I will bare all and give many people to see the real me from a dark existence to the change of lifestyle for the love of my family and my own survival, Many who know me will be shocked and many will know, my wife, my children and mum and family who has kept me going through the many obstacles in life I faced, you just can’t make this up, why! Because its real, raw, and one hell of a life experience and a journey I am living for the better me which many will agree. The book will tell you who is behind my inspiration to change and how I have inspired many so please wait to hear and read about it in 2014 I promise you won’t want to put the book down.[/span][/p][lt]h2 style="text-align: center;"[gt]Official Sponsor of Ady's Challenge 2014[lt]/h2[gt][lt]h2 style="text-align: center;"[gt]Purina[lt]/h2[gt][lt]h3[gt][span=background-color: #ffffff;][lt]span style="font-size: medium;"[gt][lt]span style="font-size: small;"[gt]                    [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][span=font-size: 1.5em;]Your pet our passion[/span][span=background-color: #ffffff;][lt]span style="font-size: medium;"[gt][lt]span style="font-size: small;"[gt]       [/span][span=background-color: #ff0000;][lt]span style="color: #ffffff;"[gt][lt]span style="background-color: #ffffff;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #ff0000;"[gt][lt]span style="font-size: small;"[gt] [/span][span=font-size: medium;] [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][span=background-color: #ffffff;]                                [/span][span=font-size: 1.17em; text-align: center;]      [/span][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3[gt][span=font-size: 1.17em; text-align: center;][div=text-align: center;][lt]span style="font-size: 1.17em;"[gt]  [/span][span=font-size: 1.17em;]Website:[/span][span=font-size: 1.17em;] [/span][url=http://www.adysjourney.com]www.adysjourney.com[/url][/div][lt]/span[gt][span=font-size: 1.17em;][div=text-align: center;][lt]span style="font-size: 1.17em;"[gt] Facebook page: [/span][url=https://www.facebook.com/adysjourney?ref=hl]Adys Journey[/url][/div][lt]/span[gt][span=font-size: 1.17em;][div=text-align: center;][lt]span style="font-size: 1.17em;"[gt]Check me out on: [/span][url=http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ady4624&oq=ady4624&gs_l=youtube.1.0.35i39.2591.11758.0.25290.]You Tube[/url][/div][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][p][url=http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ady4624&oq=ady4624&gs_l=youtube.1.0.35i39.2591.11758.0.25290.][lt]br /[gt][/url][lt]object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/K1VC41pij2o&feature" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"[gt][lt]param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/K1VC41pij2o&feature" /[gt][lt]param name="quality" value="high" /[gt][lt]param name="wmode" value="transparent" /[gt][lt]param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/K1VC41pij2o&feature" /[gt][lt]/object[gt][/p][lt]h2 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/h2[gt][lt]h2[gt][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][p][/p][lt]br /[gt][lt]h2[gt][lt]span style="font-size: 7.5pt;"[gt][lt]span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h2[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h2[gt] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][/p]
