Dave Rogers - sponsored by Bradford Building SuppliesHello to Nigel, Julie & Ellie, hope your all well and enjoying the start of a long and hot summer! I am sending you this email to inform you all that I completed the Plymouth Half Marathon on Sunday 24th May and in doing so raised just over £500 for Ellies Haven.
I completed the run in 2 hours 04 minutes and 26 seconds and finished 1838 out of 3889 runners. A little dissapointed not to break the 2 hour barrier, but being my first half marathon and what with the extremely hot conditions I guess my time will improve with more experience and typical English weather conditions!
The funniest thing was that on the day of the run I was wearing a black headband to keep the horrible sweat out of my eyes and in doing so left me with a lovely white band across the top of my forehead as even though plenty of suncream was applied the rest of my face turned brown in those 2 long hours!!
The great news is that my sponsor total has just exceeded £500 with which myself, my partner and my mother up in Devon are currently collecting in order to soon present to you. We have collected over half already so shouldnt be too much longer, and I will let you know the exact amount very soon.
Finally, I have now got the marathon bug and will be aiming to raise lots more money for Ellies Haven in the future, with a full marathon planned for later in the year. I will be happy to keep in touch, as like so many of your volunteers and fund-raisers, your charity and hard effort in what you are you doing is so unique and I am committed to raising more to the cause.
