Graham Tucker: May 2017
A message from Maureen Tucker's son, Graham:
A big thank you to everyone who sponsored me for the London Marathon! The hospice charity (Florence Nightingale) has received total donations of just under £2400 which is absolutely amazing! The race for me consisted of 2 halves — on track for a sub 4 hour up till around 16 miles and then my legs turned to lead. I think this is what's known as "the wall". Merely putting one foot in front of the other was a challenge. The support and encouragement from the crowds and marshals was amazing and carried me through the final 10 miles. My finish time was eventually 4 hours 26 minutes cheered over the finish line by my wife Rachel, mum Maureen and sister Erica. They'd spent the day with Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry in the royals & media area — thanks to having special passes courtesy of Adrian Smith. What an amazing experience — I would recommend any budding runners to apply for the ballot which opens in a week's time. Click here for ballot details.
