Just wanted to thank everyone for their support and confirm that i finished the Greater Manchester Marathon in 4h23mins. So i have ticked off the first of the three challenges that i am completing for The Christie this year.

It was an amazing day, the support from family/friends was amazing, the support from the crowds was awesome, it was really well organised and my not so little body got me through! Truly appreciative.

Yes i have a residual pituitary gland tumour, yes i have acromegaly but no it hasn’t taken over my life so if you have had a similar diagnosis you can get through this!

Here’s a selection of photos from the day.

I can’t wait to tick of my 2nd challenge in 6 weeks time which is the Bupa Great Manchester Run.

Thanks again for the support.
