Dr Adam Rennie at GOSH

You might recognise Dr Adam Rennie, Consultant Interventional Neuroradiologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), from his appearance in the BAFTA award winning BBC Two programme ‘Great Ormond Street’ last year. Outside of the hospital Dr Rennie is an avid rower, and this weekend is embarking on his second Virgin Money London Marathon.

With only weeks to go to the Marathon, the training is still going well. I ran a good half marathon on Sunday and I was pleased with the time as it was the hottest day of the year so far. Fingers crossed it’s cooler on the 13th!

The training is still going well, it’s been really cold up here in Wales but that hasn’t stopped me pounding the streets of Wrexham. I ran 15 miles on Sunday in just over two hours, which was brilliant as I’m aiming for sub-four hours on the day.

Many runners will be choosing 2012 to take on their first big running challenge. Several of you will be tackling your first ever marathon – and that’s a very daunting prospect, we know. Two staff members at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity have decided to share the pain, anguish and – eventually – joy of the experience of preparing for a marathon with a series of video blogs. Here is their story so far.


With the Virgin London Marathon fast approaching, Fundraising Manager Laura Savory explains how Great Ormond Street Hospital benefits from this special event.
