I started running as a aid to lose weight. At 23 stone my health was going down hill and I struggled to get up the stairs. On my 39th Birthday I decided that it was time to make a change. I didn't want to be fat and 40! I Started out slowly only running for a few seconds at a time but soon started to notice a difference and the weight started to come off and the distances went up. To date Iv lost nearly eight stone and discovered a love for the sport on the way. Im proud to say that I went from zero to half marathon in only 15 months! I did the Peterborough half marathon last October and as soon as I finished I started to look for another challenge. Places are very limited but I was lucky enough to secure a place in the Cambridge half marathon along with my running buddy Carly vine. As a Peterborough united fan I really wanted to run in a posh shirt as Cambridge are a local rival, i'm sure this will get me noticed!
I will be raising funds for Peterborough United selected charity The Nspcc. Please give what you can and wish me luck!
