Story

I decided to take part in the marathon as part of my running journey.  I started with couch to 5K with Queensbury Running Club in January 2018 when I wasn't very well.  I had heard running improves mental health.  I've since gone on to win runner of the season and have done many 10k's and a half marathon.  I've trained throughout summer and am finally ready to embark on the marathon.  It's not likely to be fast or pretty but I am putting on my trainers and giving it a go!  If this is a success I might even do another!  Sorry to all of you who have had to listen to me none stop about running for months but it will all be worth it!! haha!

I'm running for Healthy Minds as it is a local mental health charity that supports our local community and works a lot with school children.  Please see their page for more details.
