I'm running the New York Marathon to raise money for Mind and I'll be matching your donations pound for pound (up to £1,000). It's my 50th this year so I wanted to celebrate by running in New York again, kicking off the Wonderful Organisation and doing something I can feel proud of. The amazing work of Yannick McCabe Costa, who has developed this site in his own time for Wonderful is massively appreciated.
The last time I ran the New York Marathon was 2002 and I'm (stupidly) trying to beat the time I managed 14 years ago - 3 hours 43 minutes. I feel like I'm setting myself up for a failure, but hey ho! I've been training hard and the Sunday long runs have been exhausting. However, it's a tremendous cause and I'm thrilled to be running for Mind. Your generosity and support is hugely appreciated. Very many thanks!!
