Help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes
Iwade's Steve Carnt is running the London Marathon for JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity as his daughter Isobel who goes to Iwade School suffers from this life-changing condition. This is what Steve has to say, "I am nearing the end of my epic journey to run the London Marathon, as I am only 10 days away from the BIG day, with the date fast approaching. The last couple of weeks have been all about the taper which involves a gradual reduction in distance but an increase in intensity. This has meant more hard work, through hill sessions and pace rather than grinding out the miles, which if I’m honest I prefer. I now need to focus on my preparation for the day, food, protein, travel, rest, sleep etc. and next week involves pretty much total relaxation with a few gentle runs thrown in. A few days before the race, I have to formally register at the Excel Centre to prove my identity and receive my official race number. I will be providing an update following the race as to the whole experience of the day, the trials and tribulations, hopefully be able to provide a pretty decent time as a result of all the hard work over the last few months….Until then wish me luck" - click on the pic of Steve to donate to his page, he only needs another £361 to reach his £2000 target!
