About 6 years ago for various reasons, best being "it was a good idea at the time", I decided to start running with a local goal that was 3 miles in total which seemed a huge target, little did I know!
I then made the Wellington 10KM run my next goal and managed to haul myself round the hilly 6 miles and I was hooked and gradually the goals got a little bit further away until I had achieved the heady heights of the Taunton Half Marathon.
Always at the back of my mind was running the London Marathon and having been around 'proper runners' I never really thought I would be able to run that far. Finally, after applying numerous times instead of getting the rejection letter the "Golden Ticket" arrived through the post - I got a ballot place (I do think going up an Age Group may have swung it!).
I know I cant ask everyone I know to come up to London on the 22nd April and cheer me on so I have decided to ask for my friends, family and anybody out there to support me by donating to a couple of charities that are well worth supporting.
This page is raising funds for the NSPCC a National Charity that really speaks for itself but still needs donations to continue the brilliant work they do.
The second charity is Camilles Appeal which is a smaller Charity and who also need your support - take a look at my other Just Giving Page and you can then decide who to support
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
