Serena is Running the New York Marathon 2nd November 2008 for Harry & Meningitis Research Foundation

Serena did it - click here for results. Well done.

Serena Spencer Jones is running the New York Half Marathon to raise funds for the Meningitis Research Foundation in memory of Harry and her god daughter who survived after contracting Meningitis.

Serena says...

"I wanted to say how hard I've been training, clocking up miles & miles, morning, noon, and night (in my Hi-Vis gillet & flashing armband) and the weather has over the last year tried to blow me over, soak me & toast me but it's ALL been worthwhile.

I'm now in the 'tapering off' part - I run less & less till we fly to New York next Wednesday (crikey the nerves set in when I write this) then on arrival after registering I only have 3 titchy light runs. The idea is I'll be honed & ready like a coiled spring to take on the monster 26.2 miles and just power through it!

Well if thats a good enough game plan for Paula Radcliff it's good enough for me!

So all you wonderful kind people please please click onto my Just Giving web page and sponsor me to do this for Harry & the Meningitis Research Foundation.

Thankyou everso much with lots of love
Serena xxxx"
