Story

Thanks so much for visiting my JustGiving page.

Slightly daunting but I have finally gone and signed up for the London Marathon. I've never really been able to call myself sporty, but I wanted to challenge myself and raise money for a great charity in the process.

Training is going well - the freezing winter weather has made stepping out the front door daunting, but once out, it's been a great way to see other parts of London that I didn't know exisedt!

Running for Shelter has also certainly kept up the motivation to keep training. I've been so incredibly fortunate in my life, so hopefully the money raised from the marathon will be able to benefit families who need help with avoiding homelessness or finding a home.

There are so many people out there asking for sponsorship, so any donation to Shelter however large or small will be hugely appreciated.

So thanks again for sponsoring me and I will work as hard as I can to successfully cross the finish line!

 

Follow me on Twitter @OliviaMarathon to see how my training is going!

Can't believe you are running, talking and sending videos to work at the same time. Am in awe if you, good luck with the rest of the run.
