Story

As Acting Headteacher of Atherstone and Bedworth Heath Maintained Nursery School Federation I believe passionately in giving children the greatest start we can on their journey in education. As you may know budgets are currently extremely tight within education settings and I want to raise money to provide resources that will support our children‘s learning and have an impact on the experiences we can offer.

On Sunday May 26th 2019 I am going to return to my home town and run my first ever marathon in Liverpool - a whooping 26.2 miles! I also want to raise the awareness and importance of physical development and exercise. I am going to invite our children, families and staff to do a challenge at home to gain sponsorship too - can they do 26 of a physical activity? - it could be 26 star jumps, 26 turns in a wheelchair, 26 skips using a skipping rope or 26 laps running in a local park.

The journey so far.....since 1st January i have been following a marathon plan. I have been getting up at 5am to do longer runs and through winter i have completed head torch runs in the dark! I have entered races and achieved PB’s. I have ran further than I ever have! I have had amazing friends that have helped me out by running with me on some of my runs.

I want to show our children that you can achieve the biggest of goals - even the ones that seem huge!!! They can give everything a go!

Our children and families will able to track me on race day and see my progress!

Lets fundraise together!

    So I have run 250 miles since January when I started my training which means my trainers have run about 450 miles since I got them - so it is time to start to wear in race day trainers! Apparently the fresh tread will help! Let’s see!

    Today I set off a little nervous ready to reach a new goal 20 miles! The sun was shining hot so it was a good run to practice hot running conditions. The sun shone, the birds tweeted and the rabbits scurried! The hills on the white cliffs of Dover were tough and the last 3 miles I really had to dig deep and remember why I am doing this challenge! I also reflected on how lucky I am to be able to run and see magnificent views. And I did it! Now it is time to eat Easter Eggs!
