Hi everyone I am very pleased to tell you that I completed the Brighton Half Marathon in 2 hours 25 minutes 34 seconds! With my lovely friends Charlie & Maria by my side was the best run yet!

At the start line I was accidently tripped up in which my right hamstrings felt like an elastic band being shreaded & is still very painful! Other than that & my buring foot I am pleased with the run!

The sun shone upon us, the atmosphere was amazing peope smiling made for a memerable day indeed!

May I take this opportunity to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you all who have sponsored me, RTd me, Shared me, & got behind me once again! Your support means so much to me.

Hi everyone its Nikki Bailey (again) thank you so much for coming over to my page here!

My Story!

As many of you know I have been a HUGE supporter of www.beatbullying.org for a few years now having discovering them via twitter @BeatBullying through the lovely John Quinn!

Since then I have been hooked my first fundraiser was for beatbullying by doing a sponsored diet throughout 2011 losing 3 stone following Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Plan & raising over £1800 in total including a fundraiser in my local town centre mall which was a great success that just grew & grew with my determination to gain as much support as possible for this great cause.

The reason why I support Beat Bullying is simple, as a child I was terribly bullied repeatedly. The reasons??? Well I guess it's because they could & get away with it. What the bullies may or may not have realised was how soul destroying this was for me, it shattered any slight bit of confidence I had, which was minimal I must add. The feelings of believing that youre unworthy to be stood even holding your own shaddow & not feeling strong enough to own it is an awfully lonely place to be! I even now can remember looking on at the gangs of bullies whilst still laying on the cold concrete of the park & thinking Why?? It hurt me deeper than the physical punches it destroyed any self belief I had & got me questioning why am I here & contemplated ending it all!!

It was the most wretched time of my life & have to say when ever I think of my childhood its always tarnished heavily with dark memories that over shadow any possible good times I may have held which again were few & far between.

Once I moved away (100 miles to be precise) I started my journey on self discovery, finding out who I am, if Im a nice person or not for when one is bullied like that you question whether you are ok or just a waste of space like the bullies make you feel. Fortunately once I moved away my life began at 18 years of age,... I made great friends & never looked back...TBC....

Knowing Beatbullying is here for children today is a massive comfort for me,.. its not easy asking for help especially when feeling already at an all time low & you feel un help able but Beatbullying have a fantastic team of adult & children mentors trained helping kids everywhere in the UK gain help, advice, support & self belief. I totally believe in Beatbullying & you should too. :)

Since I have lost the 3 stone I have discovered a love for running... this year alone I have ran 3 x 10k's 1 x 5k & The Brighton Half in February 2012, all for great cancer charities.

This time I wish to dedicate the www.BrightonHalf.com 2013 for Beatbullying.org I aim to run it in 2 hours 20 minutes with a hope of raising lots of money & awareness in the build up process & on the day. The Brighton Half have made me their Ambassador of which I am totally proud.

The above personal information is from my heart, but felt that if you dont know me it would be great for you to understand why I am so passionate about this amazing life saver for traumatised kids everywhere.

Please get behind me & support me by helping me help kids today have a place to turn to, a click, a call, a letter away from help that can change their lives & teach the children tools to be strong & get through this horrendious time in their lives. Please support me in helping keeping this lifeline open for kids who need help when at their all time low,.. for a number of years ago that child was me!!

Please visit the beatbullying website & see for yourself what great work they do, thank you!

Any help you give me will be gratefully appreciated by me, Beatbullying & the children who need to know they have a lifeline out there in BeatBullying. Thank you!
