Great to hear a training up date from Andrew who is running the London Marathon for BRIGHT.
12 weeks to go until race day, training is going well, building speed and cardiovascular fitness, up to 15 miles on my endurance runs so well on track to be prepared for the big day!
The long winter runs and early visits to the gym are tough, but all is worth the tiredness and pain to raise money for this fantastic charity which provided pioneering treatment for my mum Cindy Friend.
Just a reminder, I am running the 2019 London Marathon for Bright Charity as they gave tremendous support and treatment when my mum, Cindy Friend was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer. The pioneering treatment received ensured she was able to lead a quality of life she wanted for a further two years and was in remission under the Bright treatment. However the disease returned and sadly spread to the liver and passed away in September 2017.
I am extremely thankful for the Charity to of been able to make more precious memories in the final few years of mums life, she was an inspiration to us all, her family meant the world to her, she was the greatest mum, and beloved Nanny to her three grandchildren which she adored. With the support Bright gave, I decided I wanted to run the London Marathon for Bright in memory of mum ❤
Bring on race day!
