On Wednesday 4th April I was offered a number for the BAA Boston Marathon, running for the Boston Medical Center (BMC). I look forward to raising as much as I can for such a great cause.
The race is on Monday 16th April and will be my 23rd standalone marathon and my first Boston. As I did not know I was running until 12 days before the race, my training is less than ideal and I am counting on muscle memory and swim training to get me through. It would mean a lot to me to have your support.
Please sponsor me.
Thanks for your help.
