Katy and Paul’s Great North Run September 2012

This was our hardest challenge to date, but we both completed the Great North Run (half marathon!!) in Newcastle on Sunday September 16th 2012.  There were 55,000 participants and it was raining heavily, but it was great to be doing it for Abbie.

We’ve had been training for months and building up the miles each week as¬†Katy hadn’t run for 2 years, and Paul had never run (!) so it was¬†a long haul to bring up the distances and fitness, but we were running it for Abbie so that’s all the motivation we needed.

We had a fantastic response from friends, family, and local businesses who sponsored us¬†and managed to raise over ¬£2500 for our Abbie’s Fund memory boxes, which is amazing.¬† We’ll confirm the total when we can.

Thank you to everyone who supported us (please take a look at the Thank You Page and support the businesses that support us).
