Yes, I know, you’ve heard it all before.
But I really did have a dream about this, and it was so clear, and so real, that I knew I had to act on it.
I dreamt I was halfway through the marathon, and feeling tired. I looked down and there was a list of 26 names inked on my arm in black marker pen, and I ran each mile for somebody special.
So this is where you come in.
My friend Sarah lost her mum 9 months after my dad died. She, too, was far too young. So Sarah has sponsored mile 2, and I’ll be running that mile thinking of Jenny Cassidy, of my lovely friend and her seven children, and I’ll be running it as hard as I can.
I’m not asking for a fortune for Heart Research UK, just a donation – tell me who you want me to run for, and why. If you want me to tell your story on here, I’ll publish it. If you’d rather stay private, that’s okay too. On marathon day you can log in with my competitor number and track my progress online.
I have 26.2 miles to run.
I want to share this marathon with you.
