Story

In a few weeks time I will be reaching a big milestone in my life #50. 🎂🥂🍾5️⃣0️⃣. 

I was thinking of how I wanted to celebrate and remember this special birthday and running 50 miles from Manchester to Liverpool seemed the perfect way !!! 😵‍💫 🏃🏼‍♀️ 

 So with the help of the GB Ultras team I will be taking on my biggest challenge to date by running the M2L50 ultra marathon on 7th April (let’s hope it is a Good Friday for me) ! 

#50milesfor50years

Last year I sadly lost my very good friend Maria at the age of 55, she was such a fun loving person, with a huge zest for life and was totally gorgeous inside and out.  She always championed my running adventures and supported my crazy achievements and would have been cheering me on all the way if she was here now 😢

I will be running this race in her memory but also trying to raise some cash for a cause close to her heart and who helped her and her family when they needed it…….. the BrainsTrust. 

The BrainsTrust have a vision for everyone with a brain tumour to feel less afraid, less alone and more in control.They provide personalised support and build resources that help people with a brain tumour and their loved ones live the life they want after diagnosis. They work with people to secure the best possible care for people with a brain tumour and also campaign to solve real issues, because they understand what challenges people with a brain tumour face.

So if you want to wish me a happy birthday, would have sent me a card or bought me a drink on the day …….. please put the money towards this special cause by making a small donation to send your birthday wishes and keep Maria’s memory alive. 💕
