My Personal Message

Hey Guys,

I am competing in my second marathon in Amsterdam next Sunday 16th October. As many of you will be aware, my little brother Dillon has being in one hell of a fight with leukaemia for the past 7 months and is scheduled to get a bone marrow transplant at the end of this month. Therefore, this year the charity I have chosen for the marathon is the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust who are based in St. Jame's Hospital.

For those of you who sponsored me last year in the Dublin marathon, this year there are prizes up for grabs again courtesy of my old pal and Java Republic owner David McKernan with a lovely Java Republic hamper for the top 3 people who guesstimate closest to my finishing time in seconds. So if your in you can win!! Just email me ( the time you think I will run in marathon in hours:minutes:seconds and pop a few bob in on the fundraising page ( or drop it in to me (Please note that all money will go directly to the charity and all my expenses for the race have been already paid by me). The top 3 will be announced on Monday 17th October when I am back in one piece!!

A few tips for the prediction contest: I ran 2.38.53 in Dublin last year with a painful last 7 miles as I hit the wall at 19 miles!! I ran 1.13.04 for a half marathon this year in August. I think I am in decent nick this year based on my impressive bench press statistics.

Many thanks in advance for your support,

Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust
