LMP Runners go for the MK Marathon!
18 February 2016







So....this is how it happened....
A few months ago our lovely LMP office people - all young, fit, healthy-types, decided to do a fundraiser for the orchestra:

Me: 'Great idea! What have you in mind?'
Fit-healthy-type 1: 'Let's do a marathon! It'll keep us fit and help us raise money for our projects'
Me: 'Brilliant! Go for it!'
Fit-heathy-type 2: 'Yeah, we can have two teams, those that want to do the whole thing and we can have a relay teams of 4 runners!'
Me: 'Brilliant! Go for it!'
Fit-healthy-type 3: 'Fantastic! I'll do the whole marathon, I'll start training tonight! It'll be great fun. There's be loads of players from the orchestra who will join the relay team!
Me: 'Brilliant! Go for it!'
Fit-healthy-type 4: I'd love to do it. We'll have enough for two teams at least - Jenny, Julia, Sara, Paul...
Me: 'Err...what's that...?
Fit-healthy-type 3: ...oh yeah, and Robert, Ann, Sarah too...
Me: But....
Fit-healthy-type 2: This is sounding great! So impressed you're up for this Paul. It really sends a positive message about the orchestra.
Me: But...
Fit-healthy-type 1: Wow Paul, I didn't have you down as a runner! I'm so impressed!
Me: But I'm....
Fit-healthy-type 2: Great! We're sorted. I'll register us straightaway. It'll be such fun and we'll be raising money for a really good cause. Who wouldn't want to do this...?
Me: Err...yeah....right...great...sounds fun....kind of....

So with steely resolve and gritted determination I willingly join the LMP Marathon Team. I have three months to train. I can do this I tell myself. Really...?

The hardest part of any run, apparently, is putting your trainers on. I'm two weeks into my exercise regime and I'm not sure that's quite true. But hey, it's a great way to get fit and I've signed up for it so let's do this! Gulp...

Here's the story....

On 2nd May 2016, 10 members of the LMP will be taking part in the Milton Keynes Marathon to raise money for the orchestra. We're taking this seriously. We have ambitious aims of raising £5,000 to help sustain the LMP’s ongoing work in the community, education and on the concert platform. We're enthusiastic and we've pledged to complete the race. We're not going to mess around with this. We're all extremely passionate about the work we do with the LMP and this marathon is just one part of the team’s ongoing commitment to helping shape the orchestra’s future.
