I’ve always enjoyed sport and have played all sorts through different phases of my life. In my fifties, whilst trying to find a more family orientated exercise, I began cycling and event running.
Anyone who has run for fun will know that keeping motivated is sometimes the biggest challenge so following a 10k run in Cardiff Bay in 2017 I looked for a new objective. Whilst considering a marathon I was approached by a friend at our Baptist Church who asked me to run the London Marathon for Operation Agri in 2018. He reminded me about the work of OA and its commitment to development work to alleviate the causes of poverty amongst some of the most disadvantaged people in the world.
I consider myself blessed to be healthy enough to take on this challenge; and supporting OA will make my training schedule worthwhile – even through the Welsh winter!
I have no idea how long it will take me to complete the 26.2 miles, but I can promise you that I’ll try my utmost to do the best I can. Your donations, whatever you chose to give, will give fresh reasons for hope to people who may never have heard of the London Marathon but will be encouraged by your generosity.
