Half Marathon

🏃‍♂️ So today I completed my first ever Half Marathon in memory of our Baby Noa ❤️ Running 13.1 miles / 21km is something I never thought possible. I had only panted my way through 5km in the past, so the prospect of running over 4 times this distance was a daunting one. But I stuck to a training plan and had Noa as my motivation... and I got there. I’d like to thank @sayinggoodbye_charity for allowing me to run this for them, I felt very proud wearing their vest and being part of #TeamSG - having raised almost £1,300, I know that money is going to a very worthy cause, so thank you for all you do ❤️

Big thanks to my amazing wife, having Laura there today with the bump gave me so much motivation ❤️ And thank you to little Luca, my mum and mother-in-law for being amazing cheerleaders today 📣 🥳

And Baby Noa, who I thought about pretty much the whole run. The positivity she’s brought into our lives is hard to explain because we’ve been through so much heartache and of course, we wish we could share this life with her. But she continues to make an amazing impact every day. We love you Noa ❤️
