My First Marathon and a half!

Rob is raising money for Somewhere House Somerset

My story

So the Manchester Marathon was everything I expected it to be and some. I am so so proud to confirm that I crossed the line of the 26.2 mile course in a time of 4 hours, 5 minutes and 56 seconds.

First 20 miles went exactly to plan, in fact if I'm honest, I committed the cardinal sin of going off to quickly and well, the last 6.2 miles were unbelievably tough, yep I hit the wall! Cramp, fatigue, self doubt and all of that - it really is as tough as everyone says. Fortunately there was also a wall of noise down those last few miles that really did carry me through, as well as an attitude that I was not going to back down from what I signed up for. Resilience is something I have gained in my life, as we all do. On the day I was able to tap into that and safely finish. Thank you Manchester for such a special day.

The utter elation of crossing the line I cannot describe but personally for me and those close to me, it was very special!

So now after some rest, I will be turning my attention to the Great Bristol Run - returning to where it all started last September. The fundraising pay remains open, you are reading this after all!

So hopefully you will support me to run for Somewhere House Somerset and support the community in the process, and in doing so - you may just change someone's life for the better. Remember every penny raised is going directly to supporting those in need.

Don't forget to gift aid!
