My story

[p]Why does anyone want to run a marathon? Firstly they probably need to be slightly mad, but for me there are some other reasons. I do love a challenge and feel privileged to be able to run the iconic London Marathon, plus whilst doing that I can raise money for a charity close to my heart.[/p][p]Through the amazing work that The British Heart Foundation and the fantastic NHS doctors do, they are giving more people the chance to survive heart disease. My dad (Stuart) was one of those lucky people when in 1992 he had a quadruple bypass after a heart attack, which gave my family an additional 20 wonderful years with him, for which I am so grateful.[/p][p]BHF also support research into vascular dementia. Seeing the impact of this on my mother-in-law (Moni) and our family for many years is another reason for raising money for this cause.[/p][p]I'll be training hard completing a 20 week programme which means I'll be running around 500 (practice) miles. I'd like to thank Stef who is reveling in taking on the role of being my trainer and also [url=https://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/clubs/nottingham-west-bridgford]David Lloyd West Bridgford[/url] who are supporting my fundraising.[/p][p]Thank you for giving whatever you can and I really appreciate your support.[/p][p]Fran xx [/p]
