Just to let everyone know that I have decided to deferre my place in this years London marathon as if I do it now I’m guaranteed a place in next years London marathon.
My reason for this decision is that since mid January I have been in suffering from groin/pelvic pain when I do any serious distances and was advised to ease up on road and distance running by my GP .
I have had X-Ray’s and blood tests and have been on strong painkillers for a few weeks and was intending to do the BATH HALF and see how I felt .
But with Mother Nature putting pay to this years bath half I have decided to aim to do Bath and London next year.
Therefore taking my GPs advice and ease up and get in top shape to give me the BEST chance of reaching EVEREST BASE CAMP in November.
Charity Football Match Arranged by the lads at work( Lewes District council Newhaven )

If you would like to no more about the match then please contact me.
Things are starting to get serious with now less than 100 days till London marathon and less than 300 days till I fly to Nepal to attempt Everest Base Camp .
It’s been over two & half years since accident over the the downs which didn’t only break me physically it also shattered me mentally far more than I realised.
But over the last few weeks I really feel things have moved on for me in all aspects.
This year is going to be massive adventure in so many ways.
Which kicks off on March 4th with the BATH HALF MARATHON in memory of an amazing young lady that I promised only a few days before she passed away that I would try and beat my personal best half marathon time.
Secondly run in the most iconic marathon in the world THE LONDON MARATHON on the 22nd April of which I was fortunate enough to to gain a ballot place after 8 years of trying.
Not sure it is going to a record breaking or very pretty run but with support from Brett Powell at Powells sports therapy so should manage to pull it together.
The third thing this year is going to be a CHARITY AUCTION at the GREENMAN RINGMER on the 25th May of which everyone is welcome. There will be great items up for auction.
The fourth part of this adventure is to ATTEMPT TO TREK TO EVEREST BASE CAMP .
I say attempt because you can not train against how your body copes with such high altitudes and lack of oxygen.
But this challenge is an absolute first for me in many ways.
The obvious ones lack of oxygen.
Temperatures in the -20s . Lack of sleep and altitude sickness.
More personal things are being away from my wife & family for nearly 3 weeks as have only been apart for 3 nights in 22 years of marriage.
Doing a long haul flight as Kathmandu is about 16 hours (only flown as far as Corfu)
Plus flying from Kathmandu to Lukla ( officially the most dangerous airport on earth).
But none of this things are as bad as living with CYSTIC FIBROSIS every day of your life so if you can help ME or the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRUST in way with goods or services towards my auction or a donation on my Justgiving page.
