Story

Just over a year ago I weighed over 30 stone, I struggled to walk and life was hard. I realised that unless I changed my life I was heading for a short and difficult future.

With the support of HOOP, family and friends I embarked on a journey to improve my health and regain my life. At the beginning of the year a friend suggested I enter the Great North Run, I laughed but entered secretly hoping that I wouldn't get through the ballot! Lady luck had other ideas. So here I am 8 weeks prior,  busy training, eating and sleeping the GNR.  Completing a half marathon will be a huge challenge but run, walk, crawl I'm determined to do it. 

 Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
