I'm taking on the Virgin London Marathon in 2015, and will be attempting the World Record for Fastest Marathon carrying an 80LB Pack. The record stands at 5 hr 58 min 58 sec. Here's why I'm doing it:I will be raising funds for Hope and Homes for Children, an amazing organisation that works to provide all children the care of a loving home.80LB's is the average weight of an 11 year old child. So literally, I will carry their weight on my shoulders!To celebrate my sisters birthday on 26th April!
I will turn 40 in 2015, and having endured lots of jokes from my younger friends (and siblings!) concerning my age, I want to show that there is no boundary to what can be done, if you want it enough.Ok, so I may not break the World Record, but I will give it a hell of a go, and I promise that I will finish all 26.2 miles carrying the pack regardless.
