I'm dragging my 39yr old body around 13.1 miles for Brooke because I'm not getting any younger...

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!

As some of you may know, before the beginning of this year I hadn't ran as much as a meter in the past 15 years due to suffering from shin splints. However, my ambition has always been to run a marathon.... this is halfway there, I guess!  Having ran 10km a few weeks ago I'm now hoping to prove to myself that even though I'm no spring chicken, I have the mental (and, hopefully, physical) ability to keep putting one foot in front of the other for 13.1 miles.  Wish me luck!

My charity of choice is Brooke, an international charity that protects the lives of horses, mules and donkeys and the people who depend on them.  Their aim is to equip owners with the knowledge and skills to give their animals a better way of life.  I'm passionate about horses and, unlike running, this passion has been with me my whole life.  Brooke have made, and continue to make, a difference to horses, mules and donkeys worldwide - I'd like my pain and suffering to benefit these wonderful creatures :)
