Story

Hi everyone. I succesfully completed the run yesterday. My time was just under 5h48. Thank you for all the support.

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I’m running this race as a personal challenge. In life we get the best of ourselves when we are pushed beyond our limits. For me running is a huge challenge as it is something I never did until a couple of years ago. I wasn’t sure at the beginning that I would be able to get far, but completing my first marathon in May was a great feeling.

I have learned so much about myself through the challenges on the road and am continuously amazed by how much my body makes available for the asking. I believe that completing 50km is an example to everyone that anything is possible if you just decide at some point to take the first step and stick with it for long enough. And, as my water bottle says ‘The first step is with the mind.’

I know any money I raise will go to helping others achieve their goals with the support of Thames Reach. I hope to reach my funding target and inspire others to take that first step."Every person deserves the opportunity to live in a decent home, have supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Unfortunately this isn't the case for many people in London. Thames Reach's mission is to make this achievable for even people in the most dire circumstances: those living on the streets.
