PHILIP’S FIRST MARATHON
Competing in 5k road races at the British and World Transplant Games, participating in 5k park runs on Saturday mornings and even completing a half Marathon was one thing. Running the full 26.2 miles of the Belfast City Marathon was quite another. This, however, was the goal that Philip Cairnduff, a liver recipient in 2004, set himself at the turn of the year. If he was to do it at all, it was appropriate to do it in the year he turned 30. And even more appropriate in the year his donor would have turned 60 had she lived.
