Running The London Marathon
I’m a runner. And I cannot wait to run London again. Having a ballot place is pretty much a miracle and a dream. It’s been ten years since I last ran London so I’m older and slower but keener than ever. And I can run it for ChoraChori. I only see the founder of this charity at the school gates and he is not a man for unnecessary chatter. We get straight to the point of the incredible plights of the children they have found, nurtured, schooled, fed, clothed, and if they are lucky, returned to their families. He tells me that they are given away by their families who trust that they are going to a better place, but realise later that they have been enslaved or abandoned. We talk of the strength and humour of the Nepalese team who work to find the children, and to be a family to them. And then we ourselves find children amongst us and a brief goodbye follows. And I am left with a feeling that we, surely, cannot do enough to help these kids, and those grown ups that use their lives so wisely when they dedicate themselves to recovering those kids. I salute your courage and endeavour and will run every step in your honour.
You know it, 26.2 miles around the streets of the capital.
