Thank you to everyone for their support on Sunday with the Eastbourne Half Marathon.
It was a very difficult day. I woke not feeling well and from 6am in the morning spent most of my time in the bathroom! Not wanting to let anyone down I managed to pull myself together and headed to Eastbourne. I met up with my colleague Chris and his partner Laura who gave us a lift to the start. The weather was terrible but as we approached the start time it cleared up.
