    Story

    I am running the Rotary Shakespeare Full Marathon in Stratford-upon-Avon on Sunday 28th April 2019 to help raise money to support Balsall Heath City Farm stay open.
    This lovely farm is set to close unless new money can be raised. Unless if funding can be found the closure will go ahead.
    I was pleasantly surprised to see a farm in the inner city in Balsall Heath. Just watching children’s reactions, their delighted faces when they see the animals as they are walking into the centre/nursery with their parents is just so lovely to see. Many families cannot afford to take their children to visit a farm therefore this farm gives these children the “gift” of experiencing and learning about the farm.

    I have been running regularly for the last 6 years now taking part in 10k and Half Marathons. This is my first full marathon (and last!) and finding the training really challenging. Juggling work and family life as well as making time to train 3 times a week, I keep saying to myself “what/why am I doing this?!” It will be a huge personal achievement for me but then this is also a great cause and what better way I can raise money for this fab place!

      Running with an injury (shin splint) had caused me to miss the halfway cut off point to carry on with the marathon of 2 hours 25 mins by only 5 minutes! This meant being forced to finish off the Half Marathon instead. Very frustrating but a wise choice as I am feeling the after effects of it now. I hope to fully recover in a few months, get stronger and run another Half Marathon later on this year. Please help me do this by supporting me in reaching my target xxx (Pic of my medal today.)

      Agreement has been reached between St. Paul's and The Active Wellbeing Society. (TAWS) This means the farm which has been operated in Balsall Heath for over 40yrs will remain open! I also have been recovering from the dreaded shin splints for the last few weeks! 😱 I have taken on board the advice from my physio, being sensible with my training and hopefully will be fit enough for my 1st full marathon this Sun. (28.4.19) Please do carry on helping me raise funds so it can go towards helping to improve the facilities at the farm. Thank you x
