Tissington Half Marathon

3 weeks ago I tragically lost my lovely brother Kev. He went to bed and never woke up again. His heart stopped beating and he was only 49. To help fight against this killer disease and prevent such deep sadness touching other families I will be running a half marathon.

Two years ago I’d never ran and when I first started I struggled with a 2 minute stretch on the treadmill. Over the past 2 years I have now run 3 x 10k’s and 3 x 5k’s. Indeed the last time I saw Kev was the day of the Tamworth 10k.

Running a half marathon is a significant increase in my current distance and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t petrified at the thought, however I’m hoping with a lot effort and training I will be successful. By only ambition is to complete it (and hopefully not be last lol).

I would therefore be grateful if you would support me and the British Heart Fund by donating. Thank you Dawn xx
