My Story

On November 28th 2012 my life and the life I had planned with my partner Paul came crumbling down. That night Paul, the brightest, bubbliest, loving man I know passed away suddenly to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Paul was my world. He had the most infectious laugh and brightened up my very being on this earth. When he died my world was left upside down and I struggled and still struggle to this day to survive without him.

On November 28th 2012 my life and the life I had planned with my partner Paul came crumbling down. That night Paul, the brightest, bubbliest, loving man I know passed away suddenly to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Paul was my world. He had the most infectious laugh and brightened up my very being on this earth. When he died my world was left upside down and I struggled and still struggle to this day to survive without him. I began running in the wake of his death as something to get me out of bed each morning. Putting one front of another. It lead to me running the Dublin City Marathon in 2013 and since then I've completed 26 marathons and a number of other runs. This year however I found myself unable to run away from my grieving and I've had to get through some very difficult months. Now the sunshine is beginning to pop through the clouds again I've set my task of running four marathons in four days again up in Donegal in August 2017 in memory of Paul. Last year I did this challenge and it really is an amazing physical and mental challenge that reaps in rewards for the participants. I know however this year will be much more difficult as I'm a shell of the person I was a year ago mentally and physically (I ain't got the best lungs). I really hope you can support me in this challenge. Paul will always be a big part of my life. I love him and miss him dearly.
