The second leg of our sponsorship effort in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund took place on Sunday when John took part in the 10k ‘Run for Life’ at Tatton Park.
After a grueling training regime consisting of a week eating & drinking in the sun in Portugal and a bottle or two of wine the night before, John somehow managed to stagger round in 52.10, more than a minute faster than the Great Manchester Run earlier in the year!
The mud, the hills and the pain in the calves now appear to be a distant memory as he is casually predicting a run inside the 50 minute barrier sometime next year. No doubt the British middle distance olympic squad will be quaking in their boots!!
More importantly we managed to raise some money for our chosen charity, the Bobby Moore Fund, which helps fund research into bowel cancer.
So a big Thank You to everyone who has supported us.
