🏃♀️See updates and follow the next few weeks of my marathon story!
I would really appreciate any help towards my my fundraising efforts.
This October I am running the London marathon and I shall be raising money for 'Just42', which is a great cause and I would really appreciate your support.
The charity's vision is 'to make a positive impact on the lives of young people and children' by building relationships over a number of years through different projects. This builds confidence, self esteem, community links, reduces crime and anti social behaviour and improves employability.
In February when I was forwarded an email about the London Marathon by Christine, my walking buddy in Woodbridge, it all seemed a good idea, a new challenge and something to cross off the bucket list!
But that was 6 months ago and now it’s getting scary! I’m attempting to follow the London Marathon ‘Beginner Training Plan’ which promises to make me a Marathon runner in 16 weeks. I’m on week 9 and beginning to think that may be the training plan wasn’t written for a 58 year old who has never run more than 5km before! I. Also thinking that a marathon is a seriously long way!!
Tomorrow I’m supposed to run 12 miles, maybe I’ll need an extra glass of wine tonight to help me on the way.
Will update tomorrow but be prepared I maybe sometime……
