Well what can i say its been a very busy Two years ,
Fundraising ,world wide Pandemic ,awards ,Documentaries and a small Heart Problem
April 2019 was my Fourth London Marathon
i was invited to do a talk on stage about Fundraising at the Expo
truly honoured .
this VLM was incredibly memorable not only for the media and fundraising but the day after the run i had breakfast and Eliud Kipchoge sat beside me and signed my top ,what an incredible guy
my next adventure was one of my favorites ,the Sunderland 10km running for the amazing St Benedicts Hospice
target of £500 but raised over £1200
well it wasnt too long after i had a bit of a shock
i had a cardiac episode ,turns out i have a leaking heart valve forever on medication now
so missed a few runs
i did turn up at the Great North 10km i was meant to be running for YMCA Newcastle but obviously it couldnt happen
Brendan Foster really looked after me that day
unfortunately i over did it and ended back in hospital for 10 days
i was ordered to take it easy which i did
i was allowed to attend our Pj Night the week after but i wasnt allowed to dance .
i did turn up at the Great North Run not intending to run butttttttt lol
i took it very very slowly .
only a matter of weeks later i was surprised at work by Ross Hutchinson with the
ITV Tyne Tees Pride of Britain Fundraiser of the Year
the Pride of Britain awards were without doubt the most surreal night of my life
everywhere you looked you were either inspired or in awe of the celebrities
