. . . . because I will succeed and achieve my dream of being trained by Britain’s Top Coaches and running the Paris Marathon with RW and Asics support
My love Running is and has been everything from survival - escaping the school bullies, knee deep in mud on school Xcountry, being beaten by national hopefuls in the local fun run or to just running home from the pub because it's quicker!!
Entered my 1st race and joined Newquay Road Runners 1996 and within 2 years had PB's in every distance from a leg of the 4 x 400 m relay to marathon distance with a time in the London Marathon of 2 hours 37 min and 21 seconds plus to Mountain Marathons which took me to the top of the Pap’s of Jura!!!
Like all runners those who do it alone for fun or those who run with clubs at all levels, we all have that massive common denominator we love to run and for that all differences are forgotten . . . . .
Although having run for ever it came to a sudden stop when my wife was diagnosed with Cancer 2 weeks before our daughter was born, thankfully our daughter was born fine and life with a new born and 3 year and a wife going through treatment was testing, luckily family, friends within our community were fantastic and here we all are 5 years on!
Family life is a compromise; you have to sway like a tree in the breeze if you don't bend with it you break as with things that you go through in life.
I have even had the experience of training my wife, her best friend and my sister for the Race for Life which became hilarious as they suddenly went all competitive (in a nice way) not want to miss a run even with a cold!
Now 15 years on and the ripe old age of 46! I am as proud of being a member of Newquay Road Runners and Newquay Par Athletics as ever and would never have achieved all that I have achieved in running if it was not for all the fantastic runners there.
Cornwall is a most amazing place to run whether it is on our amazing coast path with the sun setting and the surf rolling in or upon Bodmin Moor in the mist or running down a beautiful country lane as long as I am running everything is good
Getting through being one of the 5 in the Asics Target 26.2 will be such an amazing opportunity and everyone around me has been offering their support for me and for that I thank them now no matter what the outcome of the completion is!
It will give me the opportunity of re-entering the London Marathon 2014 and a chance to see if I could get a AAA's qualifying time? who knows it is all in the click of a mouse!
I look forward to hearing from everyone and thanks for reading, Tony
