I was hoping to run the 2018 London Marathon, but will be competing in 2019 now due to illness and injury.
Running 26 miles is a long way and I'm glad I've got a whole extra year to train for it now. Also it gives my a chance to raise more money for Samara's Aid too.

Event details

London Marathon 2019

Samara's Aid is a charity close to my heart because it was started by a Mum with two boys, just like me.  Samara herself is a nurse and she has managed to provide a field hospital in desperately devastated places in the Syrian conflict .
She and the team are currently raising funds for a permanent hospital for the displaced people in Syria. 
I have been struck by the fact that out of our abundance we can give a small amount so that their lives have some hope and their immediate needs are met.
What a fantastic way to help your fellow human beings in this world! I hope you are happy to join with me in supporting this wonderful cause.
