Virgin London Marathon

Spent an excellent day on Sunday cheering on Kirsten Knight who was running the London Marathon on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. Kirsten managed a time of just under 4 hrs 30 mins and raised just over £2,000 for the MDC.

I used my powerchair that was kindly supplied by Kudos First, which made things so much easier. In fact, I would never have risked going to such an event before as I wouldn't have risked falling and injuring myself, so yet again its another example of the freedom the chair has given me.

It was a great day out, so many runners there doing their bit to raise much needed funds for a whole host of charities, and hundreds of spectators cheering them on. All in all a great experience.
