That about sums it up!
My brother! Marathon Runner!Christmas '09 recovering from stomach surgery (frequent vomiting and tiny meals....at Christmas!!)
January '10 completely unexpected lucky place in the London Marathon (offered and taken)
January '10 many people doubt, worry and give lots of reasons why not
January '10 refusal to give up......
(many, many, many early mornings, late nights, blisters, blood, sweat and tears and a thousand new reasons to keep going, later...)
April 24th Marathon Day
9 stone lighter! (a person, lighter!!!)
blisters the size of marbles
loss of two toenails!
Now that is guts, determination, a little madness, a very supportive girl friend and sheer bloody strength of mind!As Mr B said...Awesome!(sponsor him here....he is still collecting like crazy! Don't worry about amount, any thing will do....a little this month...a little next if you want....collecting till Christmas!)
