2020 Paris Marathon

My Story

Yep... Ya boy is officially running a FULL marathon. In Paris. I know, right? So over brunch with near and dear, the day before Cardiff's 2018 half, I was asked: "Will you go double the distance?" to which I reply "Gimme double the time." I'm terrified already. Last year due to the popularity of Cancer Research, I couldn't run on their behalf so I ran for Marie Curie. I raised £1090. This lax and stocky lad caught a running bug. I signed up for Cardiff '19 about 2 hours after registration started. Cancer Research kindly offer cheaper entry to Paris provided you raise at least a grand for them. So... By the 5th of April 2020, this page needs to be 4 figures. 319 days to fundraise and get in shape to run 26.2 miles. In Paris. Come October, there will be the Cardiff half. I wanna beat my time of 2:28:23. Come Paris... To finish in time would be ideal! Help a fella out?
