A message from Simon Morgan
As you may know, I am running this year's London Marathon for Marie Curie, in memory of Malvina and would like to raise as much money as possible.
I was Chairman of the running club from 1992 to 1999 and manager of the men's track team from 1991 to 1999. I was subsequently made a life member in 2004, only to return in 2005 for a final stint as Chairman. Although this was short lived (as I stepped down in February 2006 due to moving to Tiptree). I hope that my legacy to ELR was setting up the website, which has seen the number of runners remain a constant level following the decline of the mid 90's which saw the numbers drop from 200 to around 50 members. It was nice to see so many new young members when I visited the club in October.
Malvina and I met in 1996 at Wanstead Leisure Centre whilst I was injured from running. As Chairman of East London Runners, I still attended the club every week for announcements, but whilst waiting for the runners to come back I got friendly with the barmaid Diane who introduced me to her friend Malvina. We were married for 12 wears and Malvina gave birth to Abigail on 1st October 1996. The picture was taken in December of the same year.
When Malvina was very ill at home last March, she drew a sketch of the picture which is in out lounge. This is why I have used it for the website. On Malvina's sketch she had written the words 'Mummy, Daddy, You - Our star, Joy to us', referring to the day thatw e brough Abigail home from hospital.
We move to Tiptree in 2005 and were very happy there. Abigail went to the local primary school and Malvina started working there as a Teaching Assistance in January 2006. I joined Tiptree RR as soon as we arrived here. Ny first club night was at a reace in Harwich where I ran in a borrwed vest. After completing my Post Graduate Diploma in 2007, I had a year off, but am now completing my Masters in memory of Malvina. This is proving quite difficult whilst training for the London Marathon and looking after Abigail.
The reason that I am running for Marie Curie is because they provided a nurse for me during the night as part of the hospice scheme. I will never forget the kindness of the nurse that was with me when Malvina passed away in the early hoursof the morning, staying with me until I had made the necessary arrangements.
I have been sent a running vest by the Marie Curie team and am now a 'Daffodil' runner. As I mentioned on my web page, I would like to complete the course in under 3hrs 15 minutes, which would qualify me for the following year's race as a 'good for your age' runner. If possible I would like to beat my PB of 3hrs 7 minutes, from 1987. I really should have run alot quicker 20 years ago as I had a 10K PB of 34.29 and half marathon time of 1hr 16 mins 48 secs, but I didn't do enough training and hit 'the wall' at 22 miles. As I am never going to beat any of my other PB's I am determined to have a crack at the Marathon.
However, should I not manage to do it, I am guaranteed 2 PB's as part of my Marathon training (in the Benfleet 15 and Essex 20 ), as I have never run these distances before!
I would like to thank all my old friends at ELR who have been so supportive of me during this difficult time.
