He DID it

The Brighton Marathon.


What an amazing experience.
 Even to be a  spectator and see someone run it and to watch the joy on their face
 as they come through the finishing line,it is truly emotional. 




Well...the Nass did it.


After being diagnosed with MS just before Christmas.... which crushed him..momentarily
...he decided to run the Brighton Marathon


and after being thwarted in his training, due to a leg injury...
 after 20 years of not running.... 


he did only 9 runs before the injury and thought if he continued he 
wouldn't be able to actually run on the day.


On the big day...


After 4 miles his muscles seemed to give up on him and he thought
 he wouldn't be able to do it..
but true to form..
he persevered...but only just... and after a few miles
met up with Sammy, who was on the brink of also giving up.
They spurred each other on..and congratulated each other on each mile run
and they came through the finishing line together.


WELL DONE NASS!


He has raised over £1,000 for the Chestnut Tree Children's Hospice and £250 for the MS Society.
very many thanks to everyone who has kindly sponsored Nass.



HERE IS THE LINK TO MY PICTURES OF THE MARATHON


I tried to take as many pictures as I could of all the Chestnut Tree runners..
so..... if you were running for them, you might be interested to take a look
 and by all means download the ones you want.
