THE STORY:

James Rhys-Davies wrote -

Back in Dec 2015 I had the incredibly smart/stupid idea of running a marathon. It is a challenge I have looked at and often said to myself "I would like to do one of those some day". I decided my New Year’s resolution would be to run the Chicago Marathon on Oct 9th 2016. The initial excitement of thinking "Great, I will get fit, raise money for charity and cross the Marathon off my bucket list" was followed by the angst of "Oh crap, I HATE RUNNING", especially long distance running. I was always into team sports rather than running; the longest run I had done up to this point was probably 1-2miles about 15 years ago whilst I was at school. Clearly I did not win that race [but will probably win the marathon! :)] Despite my lack of running experience, I put my name into the lottery for the Chicago Marathon. I thought to myself, this is a lose/lose situation. If I don't get into the Marathon, I will be disappointed, but if I do get accepted, I will have to run a bloody Marathon! Low and behold, I GOT ACCEPTED... After the initial shock and realisation of being accepted, I started training and looking for a charity. I have decided to run for a local Charity called the "Houston Children’s Charity". The HCC is a great charity and has many different projects helping children in areas of poverty, providing prosthetic limbs, helping with school supplies and other great causes to help the children of Houston. For more information, see www.houstonchildrenscharity.org Any donation would be greatly appreciated... and I hope I can finish the Marathon! Thanks Jamesy
