The marathon tomorrow – a quick update

First of all – thank you so much to everyone who has helped me raise money for Marie Curie by sponsoring me on my marathon run on 6th May.  I am overwhelmed by the support and kind words – and the very generous anonymous donations too – thank you – whoever you are!!

The experiment has begun.  I’ll write more after the marathon – when I will be able to tell you if I was able to complete the race using the protocol, along with all the details.  In the meantime, here is a quick update.

32k, heat, teddy bears, and sugar pills

First of all – thank you so much to everyone who has helped me raise money for Marie Curie by sponsoring me on my marathon run on 6th May.  With your generosity I have now raised a whopping £685.  This will go to helping families in their greatest time of need, providing nursing support at home to those with terminal illness – a highly valuable and essential service.  I am overwhelmed by the support and kind words – and the very generous anonymous donations too – thank you – whoever you are!!
