Training and Fundraising
When asked how his training was going, he said, “It’s going well! I’m going for runs before and after work which has taken some getting used to. Once I’m used to running longer distances, I can start pushing for faster times ready for race day. I’ve never done anything like this before but what scares you makes you stronger right? I wanted to test myself and my recent health scare has made me feel like I have something to prove to myself.
There’s a long way to go in terms of fundraising but I have a great network around me and some fun ideas on how we reach the £2200 target.”
Why are you Running?
“Hospitals are not the nicest places to be when you’re scared, alone and unsure what is happening to you but everyone at the hospital was extraordinary. They were so empathetic, quick to respond and so good when it came to getting me back to 100%.
I am running for them to raise as much money as I can, to say thank you for all the work they have done for me and countless others. I have watched the marathon at home for years, watching the likes of Kipchoge, Farah and Gebrselassie run down the Mall and now I get to do it myself – of course just not at their pace!”
“I’m a firm believer that if you put your mind to something, you can achieve anything and here I start.”Nathaniel East, ENVY Offline Assistant
