One week to go!

So here we are, with one week to go and I’ve done as much training as I could.

It was brilliant to do my very first half marathon with John last weekend. Training was VERY patchy due to the pandemic and in 2020, it seemed almost impossible to think that we could run the London marathon in 2021. Cliffe, Stewart and John have rallied round to give me as much training as possible in the past few months.

They all have different techniques. When stepping up curves, Cliffe says “1.2.3. Jump!” and then “1.2.3. Off!”, John says “3.2.1. On!” and “3.2.1. Off!” and Stewart is a mixture of both! However, I have had complete confidence in all three VI guides. We have done a lot of talking, we have had a few laughs together and a couple of near tumbles! But now I’m rearing to go!

Thanks to everyone who has donated already, by name or anomalously.

I am hoping my faithful, canine friend Spencer will be waiting for me at the finish line! He’ll be hoping we’ll be back in time for his tea!

I’m glad to be doing what I can for Guide Dogs, ultimately helping other people with visual impairment.

What more can I say? I started it so I’ll finish it (hopefully)!

  1. Hi David,
    I wish I could be there with you to run some of the way, but having had the operation done on my toe on Tuesday I’m out of action.
    I wish you all the best and will be thinking of you.

    Have a great run
    Julie xx
