It’s Bournemouth Marathon Time!

So Sunday 6th October is nearly upon us and my incredible Dad is going to be running the Bournemouth Marathon!

To show my support for him and Myeloma UK, the charity he is raising money for, I thought I would dedicate my nails and this post to them this week.

The colours I have used for this one are Barry M bright orange and nail art pens in black and white.

The charity Myeloma UK is something that is very close to mine and my family’s hearts.

Six years ago my very lovely auntie, Deborah Clayton, passed away from Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, which is a type of cancer that arises from plasma cells which are found in the bone marrow. My dad has been wanting to run a marathon for quite some time and, when we found out that there was going to be one in Bournemouth, he just had to sign up. He chose Myeloma UK as the charity to run for as a way of helping us remember Deb and to show support for a charity that helps support families and patients that are affected by this type of cancer.

So far, he has raised just under £500, which I think is an incredible achievement!

I think tomorrow is going to be a very emotional one. I am so ridiculously proud of my Dad and I am so impressed by his dedication to training for the marathon, especially with a few set backs along the way.

Good luck Andy Phelps!
