Hi Everyone, I think I might be going insane but…
My fitness/weight loss mission has been going really well recently, completing the couch to 5k app and also testing myself with some longer runs, up to 13k so far. I’m over 4 stone down as well which I am over the moon with. Being the absolute nutter and ridiculously ambitious person that I am, I wanted a challenge to push myself even further.
As you may or may not be aware, I recently applied to a charity to run the 2021 London Marathon for them. It took them a little while to get back to me, but can now confirm that I’ve been accepted to run for them in the marathon!
The charity is Caudwell Children, they do massive amounts of work to provide children with specialist equipment that their families may unfortunately not be able to afford. This will sometimes involve them contributing massively towards the total cost of the equipment, or on some occasions paying for it in full. They have also recently set up a multi million pound autism centre which is doing fantastic research and development. (Link to charity’s website below)
Whilst I wanted to run for a great cause, I’ve also become a great believer in anything being possible when you set your mind to it, which is what I want to prove. I never thought I’d be a runner and still don’t believe I’m a natural at it, but I’m going to complete this marathon and do it in a respectable time as well! I wasn’t in a great place towards the end of last year and I really want to prove how quickly things can turn around!
I’ve put a link to my JustGiving page below, I would be massively grateful for any donations 😊 Thanks all and let’s hope we get back to normality soon!
