In 2018 I raised nearly £3000, for the wonderful charity Children With Cancer, by running the hottest ever London Marathon.
It was a wonderful experience and the crowds were truly awe inspiring but I must admit it was tough. I always dreamed of sprinting down the Mall to finish in under 4 hours. Sadly the reality was very different due to the intense heat on the day meaning I rally struggled and finished in 4.5 hours.
Ever since I have felt that I had 'unfinished marathon business' — so knowing that I would never win a place in the London Marathon Ballot I entered the Manchester Marathon on the 7th April 2019 once again running for Children With Cancer.
However in October 2018 I was offered a Ballot place in the 2019 London Marathon. So assuming my feet survive the first and I'm injury free 2019 will be the year of two marathons in 21 days supporting Children With Cancer!!!
Please dig deep and support this wonderful charity, their work saves the lives of poorly children. Here's the online page: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MichaelRogers43
