After swearing that I would never do it, I'm taking the plunge. 42 kilometres...gulp. Having completed my first half marathon back in 2014 and somehow managing to do 11 since then, it's time to take on the mighty marathon.
I won't be going it alone however, I will be running alongside a very good friend of mine who recently lost her father unexpectedly due to heart conditions. We've got this Liz!
Although I'm notoriously very bad at not training when I really should - this time has to be different...AND it's all for a good cause. So any donations, big or small, are very welcome!
I'll keep track of my progress on my blog www.goguiri.com - as well as adding my training plan and a running map or two - so take a look!
So, in the words of my unofficial trainer, Ben "bobo" Huddleston: "Welcome to the grind!"
