Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. In 2018 I ran a little under 800 miles. 

In 2019 I plan on running 1000 to raise £1000 for Acorns who are my company's charity for the year. They are local to Cheltenham and the area I grew up in.

I am very lucky to have a healthy little girl and Acorns do fantastic work for families who are not as fortunate.

Acorns came to our office and showed some videos of the work they do and they brought me to tears.

I'm sure I'll shed a few more over those long miles.

I am also planning/organising a running challenge at work, several 10km and half-marathon races proudly wearing my Acorns running vest.

• Great Run Birmingham 10k 2019
