A sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the Lions at this year’s football marathon. The temperature topped 31 degrees on the scrubs on Saturday with no shade to be found anywhere.
So the 9 1/2 hours of football we got through was easily the toughest endurance event I’ve ever done. Although strangely, the hardest bit to deal with was the cocktail of sweat and sun cream constantly dripping into my eyes which gave the day a kind of dream-like soft focus. Loved having my son along for his first marathon, he played almost every minute of every game and was still running at the end. God knows how.
We came 16th out of 48 teams in the end, played some decent stuff and thanks to you raised £2865 for a great cause.
A thousand thank yous,
Max & all the Lions
