Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

For the best part of a year now I have been training for the London marathon on the 23rd April 2017. After a handful of 3 mile runs I thought applying for the marathon would of been a good idea.

A year down the line, my nipples have chafed, my feet are blistered and my toes are black. I can't wait to never run again. 

We had a real success in summer with a hog roast that left the majority with sore heads then next day but luckily for me, a healthy looking marathon kitty. Thanks to all those that came. 

For those who haven't already, please dig deep and donate. Any donation is welcome however big or small. 

I am very happy with myself on the commitment I have shown especially through the winter months. But I'd be ever more happier if everyone could help contribute in smashing my £2000 target, that would be the cherry on the cake. 

See you on the finish line and thanks again.

Love Mo x
