Who are Chafing The Dream?

Hey there!

Thanks for stumbling across this website, written jointly by Adam and Fran as we journey towards our first Half Marathon Run!!

Now whilst this site is mainly a comical guide through our aches and pains as we run: it has a much stronger and heartfelt foundation. We are raising money for Help4Heroes…and we need your help!

Don't worry kids, the sweet 70's fro has loooooong gone.

Who Are this Crazy Pair?

Fran and I were brought up surrounded by the British Armed Forces: our fathers both served (although mine now retired!) in the Army. We have been fortunate enough to have met, and lived amongst, some of the most extraordinary people imaginable. And as a result we have decided to dedicate our Cardiff Half Marathon run to Help4Heroes.

And hopefully (legs willing!) future marathons too!!

We even colour co-ordinate. Expect Matching running gear!!

We swear, we do other things than drink... ish.

How Adam ends most of his runs ...

Although the name of our page is a bit of running banter (we had to inspire your attention somehow!) our cause is very serious.

This site is dedicated to our journey in support of Help For Heroes;

Our mission is to deliver an enduring national network of support for our wounded and their families. We will inspire and enable those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential.
