Notch­ing up num­ber six

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Ducking And Diving -

For Paul Bras­ing­ton of Ken­ning­ton it will be his sec­ond marathon in a fort­night – hav­ing suc­cess­fully com­pleted the Brighton Marathon on Sun­day, April 9.

The 39-year-old is run­ning both marathons for The Friends of the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal.

Mr Bras­ing­ton said: “I have been a keen run­ner for the last 10 years or so and the Brighton and Lon­don Marathons will be my fifth and sixth re­spec­tively. “Lon­don may be glo­ri­fied sight­see­ing as I ex­pect to still be aching from Brighton!

“Run­ning for me be­came a great way to keep fit when I be­came too old and slow to play foot­ball any more.

“There is a very good so­cial side within the run­ning ‘com­mu­nity’ and for an in­di­vid­ual sport every­one is very sup­port­ive and en­cour­ag­ing of each other.”

Mr Bras­ing­ton works for Morn­ingstar, an in­vest­ment man­age­ment firm.
