Marathon Man


For a number of years I have wanted to run a marathon and now it’s finally happening. On 19 May 2013 I am running my first ever marathon in Copenhagen, not far from where I grew up.

I started training after Christmas and it’s been somewhat of a rollercoaster. I started off really well, full of hope and enthusiasm, running 4 days a week, come rain come snow.

In March I got ill. I was completely wiped out for 3 weeks. It was incredibly frustrating not to be able to continue my running schedule. I started resigning myself to that fact that it wouldn’t happen this year. I was really sad and disappointed. Then the black cloud disintegrated and I started getting my energy back.

Having put myself through a 16 week training schedule I now feel fitter than ever. I’m really excited about running the marathon and I can’t wait to get out there to prove to myself that anything is possible if I put my mind to it.

If you’d like to sponsor my run, it would mean a great deal to me and my dear friends Sarah and Pete. This website tells you all about their charity.

If you are wondering why I’m wearing foil on my head in the photo, you should watch this film which I made to encourage donations:

    Go Peter! Love the film – will you be wearing your tin foil cap on the day? You will definitely be easier to spot.

    Good luck, we’re all really proud of you. (Donation made of course).
