Dragon Hall Newsletter – Half Marathon Fundraiser (update)


TIME: 1hr 56 min 10 sec

Good evening all – well, I did it!

This morning at Richmond Park, after months of training, I realised my goal and achieved a 1/2 marathon in under 2 hours! It was an amazing and incredibly satisfying personal experience.

Urged on by a very friendly and supportive crowd of people and the knowledge that many of you had so generously donated, I pushed myself faster than I thought I could – trimming eight minutes of my personal best – not bad for an old man 🙂

Thank you to everyone who pledged on my funding page – all money goes straight to Dragon Hall. I will email everyone personally my thanks, but it will take some time!

Thank you again for all your messages of support over the last couple of days, it really meant a lot to me
