Since pulling out of the 10in10 on the beginning of day 5 I’ve been overwhelmed by the messages of support with over 90 on Facebook and several by email. I have found the sheer number of people following my sadly short cut progress in this year’s 10in10 astonishing. There have been near 200 people visiting my blog each day. I feel like I have let you all down.
Maybe I could have hobbled round the last 6 days but I know that would have meant walking most of it and that’s just not me. I had come to run this event, like I have done in the past and not simple complete it by walking over half of it. I hope you all can understand and appreciate this.
It’s now day 7 and I’m just getting round to reading all those many messages on Facebook. I wish to thank you all for following my story and for the encouragement and support. I feel very humbled and touched to know so many family and friends are interested and care.
I also want to thank the following;
The Brathay Trust for kindly offering me this opportunity once again.
The Support crew headed by Aly who look after the runners ALL day for 10 days and do a selfless and magnificent job.
The Physio Team headed by Adam and Katie with their army of year 2 physio students from Cumbria University. They do such a professional job massaging all the “Hurty Bits”. A special mention the Vikash, my therapist during the event.
ASICS, High-5, Rock Tape (of which I seemed to have used an unusually large about this year), Audi, the Stan Laurel Inn and all the sponsors that help make the event what it is.
Yuk-Lam, Abbey, Lucas, my parents and my brother Paul, Han May and all my family and friends. All of you have not just supported me but have given donations and other help with my main fundraising event; the Gin Pit Marathon.
This year I have still managed to rise over £4,500.00 so thank you to anyone who has contributed in any way to help me reach this total. If while reading this you are still contemplating sending a donation then please do at the link below and help some disadvantaged young people.
