We had a little chat with Martin & Nick today to see how they are getting on with their GNR training which they are running in aid of NTDF.
We asked Martin:
How is the training going - is Nick Bear keeping up OK?
"We have been warming up over the last few weeks and training started fully yesterday. We covered 1.5 miles with no stopping - Nick had a good sweat on and is a little sore today!"
How often do you Train?
"We will be running three times a week with gym sessions added down the way- I will give you some of our targets later this week"
What Made you choose to raise funds for NTDF?
"The charity does a great job in the community and helps in areas that many people shy away from so deserve all the help they can get"
Is there anyone who inspired you to start doing the Great North Run?
"My Grandfather was a keen runner however never ventured to a half marathon so I though in his memory I would compete."
Martin & Nick are also running the Blaydon Races in June - definitely a good warm up for the big one in September!
You can sponsor Martin & Nick in the Great North Run here:
All the money raised by Martin & Nick will go directly to activities here at the forum - making such a big difference to disabled peoples lives in North Tyneside.
We will be sure to catch up with Martin and Nick again soon
