We support families with disabled children to improve their lives


I have been a supporter of Ryedale Special Families now for a long time. I am very aware of the work they do and the difference they make to the families of children with special needs. I know a few families they have helped too. I want to do my bit to help the local community which is why I have chosen them as the cause to run the marathon.

I have entered to run a marathon 5 years ago but unfortunately I developed an injury during training for it. I am now determined to make this year my year to do it!

My training is going well and a month into it and I have already covered over 100 miles in January. My goal for Feburary is 120miles. I am building up m,y long runs by a mile or so a week. This week I am going to run 15 miles on Saturday when I do my long run.

The weather so far has been ok although very cold so having some sponsors to help keep me going is really motivational.

I am treating this a my job now so the time to run is set in my diary 3 times a week and I am also doing a yoga class once a week to keep me well stretched and a sports massage once a fortnight to ensure I avoid injury again.
