On April 23rd 2017, long-time supporter and EMpowerUP athlete Alex Williamson, ran the London Marathon raising funds for EMpower!
On his fundraising page Alex states, “I used to run marathons. The year was 2010: I was childless, worked 10 hours a week less than now and as my wife cheerfully points out “Honey, you were a lot fitter then”. A serious marathon preparation routine involves 5 serious runs a week; I’m told 5 serious flights a week isn’t a traditionally accepted substitute.
So why on earth have I agreed to run 42.2km (a full marathon) in London on Sunday April 23rd? Misplaced bravado, stupidity & a degree of temporary insanity are clearly part of the answer, but more importantly: there is a good cause to run for”.
