Karen Sutcliffe, one of OstoMART's Area Managers is running the London Marathon
Karen has put together a little something about the marathon, and her reasons for doing it. Please see below...
"I'm doing it with my daughter Kathryn who is 21 and this is her
first Marathon attempt - I did the Milan marathon last year with my
other daughter, Lizzie who is 24 and this obviously generated a bit of
sibling rivalry! Thank goodness I've only got two daughters!
We are raising money for Guide Dogs, this is a charity close to our hearts as my husband is visually impaired and has been registered blind for the last 10 years. He doesn't have a Guide Dog, but we have seen the huge benefits having one brings to so many visually impaired people.
We've trained hard, in all weathers - sunburnt last week and frozen this week in snow and sleet! We're looking forward to the day and will put some pictures up afterwards to show our efforts."
