Th Edinburgh Marathon 2022
Online Total: £1,110.20
Offline Total: £0.00
Gift Aid: £193.00
I am not really a runner but started during the 1st Lockdown. I never thought I’d really enjoy it, I just wanted out the house. However, it’s made a huge difference not just physically but mentally too, it’s my time to escape and reflect. Therefore, this year 2022 I decided to challenge myself and run with and for a purpose. So this year I’m running the Edinburgh Marathon in aid of Compassion UK.
I want to be challenged and help make a difference. I’m not looking for a medal or to beat my wife’s London marathon time. I’m running to help make a difference in the lives of others. By committing to run for Compassion, a charity my my and I have supported for many years I know that your donations, support and prayers will make a difference. When I’m tried and don’t feel like training or going out for that long run, it’s knowing that I’m running to make a difference, and that’s what helps motivate me.

Alan, 'Most certainly I tell you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.' Jesus said.

All the best with this Alan. I peaked at 10k but a marathon sounds incredible. I’m sure you’ll smash it (as the youth say 😅).
