They say life is about challenging yourself.I have always said I wanted to run a marathon before I was 50. Now In my 48th Year it is time to make that happen. The Hull Marathon will be my first ever marathon.
Although I am doing this for myself, it would have been crazy to not use the opportunity to benefit others through my efforts.I have chosen to run for the Smile Foundation for the simple reason they help smaller local charities in our region who don't get the exposure they deserve.
It was important to me that my sweat (and most likely tears ! ) over the 26.2 miles will be for the benefit of those local to me who need it most.Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.
