The 2015 London marathon

This year I will be running the London marathon this year in an as yet unspecified fancy dress costume.

This will be my first foray into marathon running since I did this event in 2003. Back then I was younger, lighter, less injured and wasnt suffering from the trials and tribulations of life. That's why I thought let's make it harder for myself and run in a silly costume!

I was lucky enough to get a ballot place for this years event. Therefore I decided that I wanted to raise some money for a charity close to my heart.

Several charities jump to mind but the one I have chosen is the Alzheimer's society.

My 87 year old Nana is a wonderful woman full of life and as fit as a fiddle. She was the perfect granny growing up and a loving and caring woman who makes epic cakes.

It hurts me to see her descend slowly and exasperatingly deeper into the clutches of this horrible illness. This once outgoing woman reduced to forgetting the simplest of things and having to be cared for.

The worst part is the look of realisation on her face that this is happening.

It breaks my heart to see her suffer in this way.

Therefore I ask you please to donate to this worthy cause and not only help my Nana but the thousands of other Nanas and  families who are in similar or worse situations.

Whatever you can spare will go towards helping those out who need it the most.


  1. Everyone should help those in need to the extent that he can, because even one dollar can help change someone's life.

  2. Best of luck! I wish that you win this marathon, just for the sake of that charity. I know how it feels to see someone you love suffer from Alzheimer's. My granddad got this disease in his last days. Believe me, it was such a difficult time because seeing one of the best dissertation discussion writers in this situation legit hurt my heart. I really do miss him sometimes! L

  3. This is very nice and amazing step and through this, many needy persons will get help properly because many athletes will take part in this race and they will collect charity for poor persons and feel good because this is very nice act and liked by every person. The writers of coursework writing services also appreciated this step and they are happy because they will also enjoy this race.
