An awesome foursome running for @CRY_UK – @BenBrownBBC
We are privileged to have four people running in memory of Tom and Claire in this year’s London marathon. They are Lucy Thorpe, Ben Brown and Juliette and Saul Westbrook.
We’ll be featuring them all on the site this week, ahead of the race on Sunday, April 26.
Today it’s CRY patron Ben Brown who writes:
“Training for the big day is going quite well, though rudely interrupted by a hamstring injury from too much five-a- side football, a bad dose of flu and the small matter of a general election I’m supposed to be covering around the country!
“On the plus side, I’ve been running along the glorious banks of the Thames between Putney Bridge and Barnes Bridge and also in the majestic scenery of Richmond Park.
“Having run the Royal Parks half marathon for CRY and Tom, I know half of what to expect on April 26th, though I fear it might be twice as painful! This time I’ll be running once again to raise money for CRY, and in loving memory of both Tom and Claire. Thinking of them both as I limp round will keep me going and drive me on.”
