So this years @londonmarathonis complete. I was fine up until half way and then my hip and foot problems started to play up. Glad to have got round in one piece and taking 22 minutes off my 2017 time. I also made a brand new best friend in @bastilledanand we have decided to meet up later in the year to do a collaboration. Thank you to everyone who has donated, I have managed to raise £1826.20 with an additional £435 offline meaning I have raised £2261.20 for @mariecurieukso thank you, it really does mean a lot. #virginlondonmarathon2019#virginlondonmarathon#londonmarathon#marathonrunning#marathonman#strava#runningworld#runnerlife#runner#running#bastilleband#26.2miles#completeditmate#runnersofinstagram

Today is the day, where I run my second @londonmarathonin memory of you Grandad Ray. Even though I ran in 2017 in his memory, I expect today to be just as emotional. As I write this lots of memories of this guy flood back for instance, on Saturday nights when coming round ours my Nan Dora they would take us to McDonalds so my parents could get an hour to themselves and rest. On those Saturday nights, when growing up I would always ask for him to read the bedtime story to me and 99% of the time I had to go back downstairs to tell my parents and Nan that Grandad had in fact fell asleep before me. Grandad Ray was a great man, my Dad tells me stories about him and how accepting he was so accepting of everyone regardless of who you were or what you looked like. Grandad Ray was also the best England Cricket and Football coach/manager to have never coached/managed the national side. He loved his sport and I have great memories of him watching me play and also going to Edgbaston to watch England play the likes of Australia. In 2015 Ray passed away after a 4 year battle with Cancer, a disease that has affected the Hawkins family oh to well. I remember taking him to get chemotherapy in 2013 and I was so proud of him and how he was handling it all, he was so appreciative that his Grandson would take a morning off work to take him to those appointments. Towards the end, his standard of life was poor and could have been better, he adamant that he did not want to pass to away in a Hospice and we honoured that wish. I am unsure as to why he didn’t want to go in to a Hospice, maybe it’s because he saw it as a way of accepting defeat, I don’t know? What I do know is if he had gone in to a Hospice the care he would have got from the likes of @mariecurieukwould have been second to none, not just for himself but also the family. Running today in memory of my Grandad and knowing that all the money I raise goes to a fantastic charity, where families suffering with cancer will get treated in the best possible way, helps with the tears that are currently running down my cheek. #londonmarathon2019#mariecuriehospice#mariecuriewestmidlands#justgiving

I’ll be around half way through the @londonmarathonthis time next week. Only 7 days left before the big event. The training plan hasn’t gone exactly how I wanted it to, but it never does. I’m looking forward to just plodding around London next week and getting a new PB! If you would like to donate you can via the link before. Marie Curie do a fantastic job and all the money I raise will ensure those families who need it are given the best care possible! http://www.justgiving.com/Andy-Hawkins13?utm_id=124 #virginlondonmarathon#virginlondonmarathon2019#londonmarathon#marathonrunning#marathonrunning#runnersofinstagram#runningofinsta#runningmotivation#runforestrun#running#run#runningman#runnersbody#runners_of_insta#runningworld#runrunrun#runplanet#runningday#run4fun#runnerlife#runners#runnerlife#runninglife#runtastic#mariecuriehospice@mariecurieuk

Final long run before @londonmarathonDONE!! 16 miles in the bank, had to abandon the last mile due to a stitch. Happy with where I am after getting a 4 mile tempo run in yesterday too. A total of 20 miles ran this weekend. I’m looking forward to the next two weeks of tapering and then one final lot of carb loading before the big event.

A solid mornings graft @coalitionperformancetoday. I’m incredibly proud of my recent skin fold test. I am weighing in at 94.9kgs which is a 12kgs shift in 18 months. What I am proud of most is that the drop of 12kgs is that I have lost 13.1kgs of pure body and increased my lean mass by 0.5kgs. This shift in body weight and body fat and led to my body being more durable and less injury prone. Not only does this help with my glass body I am getting even more ready for this years @londonmarathonwhich is in 7 weeks. Thank you to the coaches @edkrawiecki@farndonc@jamestrow1Coach Dave and Coach Callum. #running#runningmotivation#marathontraining#instagramrunning#instarunning#runnersofinstagram#runners#runnersbody#runnersworld#runnerfit#runnerfitness#coaltionperformance#unit5#shrine#bodytransformation#virginlondonmarathon2019#virginlondonmarathon#londonmarathontraining#mariecurie

For Mum’s birthday this year my Dad has got the Second World War Medals that her Dad, my Grandad, got for fighting in Burma from 1939-45. For some reason he threw them away after returning and hardly ever spoke about what happened and always mentioned about being a forgotten soldier. I am proud of what he did for this country and glad we can remember him with these new medals. #worldwar2#WW2#warmedals#burmacampaign#history#proudgrandson
