My story

[p]Hey! [/p][p]I’m running the London and Berlin Marathon 2018 and here’s the reason why....[/p][p]I was born with ‘bilateral congenital talipes equinovarus’ (bit of a mouthful!), [/p][p]more commonly known as club feet or crippled. Both my feet were twisted and pointing inwards on their sides hence the term ‘club’ like that of a golf club.[/p][p]Without surgery I would have been unable to walk and in a wheel chair for life. [/p][p]The extent of my club feet was quite severe and required 2 operations at birth, with a further operation at 11 years old. [/p][p]Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) were the only hospital that had knowledge, necessary resources and doctors to do what was needed so I could walk. They continued to support me on a regular basis right through my childhood up to 16, and for that I am forever indebted.[/p][p]Whilst I can run, It’s going to be a big challenge. Despite the amazing work GOSH has done to my feet, they are by no means perfect. Most wont realise I’m a pain on daily basis. Even with usual daily activities they hurt due to the deterioration of the ankle joints, and so it’s really a case of running the marathon now or never! Training and both running the marathon is going to be super tough but I’m ready for the challenge!! [/p][p]And so now it’s pay back time! Please sponsor me with whatever donation you can. [/p][p]Follow me on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates on the training and I’ll try to go FB live on the big day! [/p][p]THANKS! Justin [/p]
