My story

I am not in the best physical shape, and having a challenge like this to aim for will assist me in my physical health.

I lost my dad through Alzheimer's and seeing this cruel illness first hand was a heart breaking experience, let alone what it must have done to my dad. The great mind and person, and seeing a man who was such a great role model into a person he wasn't was a horrifying thing to see.

He died in December 2020 and the lockdown had a big impact on the community assistance he was provided with due to the restrictions in place, something which I found really difficult.

Seeing him suffering and losing him had a effect on me, and made my outlook on life change.

I will be 50 in June and whilst I am not going through a mid life crisis, I have decided to set some goals to reach by the time I'm 60. One of these goals is to raise money for a Alzheimer's related charity and to attempt a half marathon another goal.

Seeing the ballot to enter this through an internal email at work gave me the incentive to apply, and winning a place has made me even more determined.

I know that this will be a big challenge, I know that a half marathon is going to be difficult, after all 13.1 miles is a long way. However during the training and the event I will be thinking why I am taking part. And when I cross the finishing line, I will be thinking of all the money that people have generously given and the cause it will be going to.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and I am very humble that people have generously given support, and have decided to sponsor me, and it is very much appreciated.
