Okay, so I am attempting my first Marathon in July, and I am pretty sure its going to hurt my legs as they try to carry me over 42 long kilometres. But I am grateful for those aches and pains (not so much the nipple chaffing) and grateful that my legs function well enough to be able to take me that kind of distance. Not everyone has that luxury. 

My wonderful mother has suffered from a condition called peripheral polyneuropathy for many years. Its a condition that causes severe malfunction of the nerves meaning she is unable to stand or walk for any long periods and even simply sitting can cause severe numbness. Research and treatment for her condition is limited but all the money I raise will go straight to the Neuropathy trust who provide invaluable support

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored me. I am so grateful. As many of you know things didn't go quite to plan (see pics) but it was definitely a challenge!
