Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
When I was invited to join some friends on the Jurassic Coast Challenge in March my first thought was that I couldn't do it - so that's why I immediately said yes! I've not run a marathon since 2001 so why not return to marathon running by doing 3 of them across 3 consecutive days? The fact that dodgy knees is the reason I haven't done more marathons since then won't get in the way!
I'm thinking that it's just one foot in front of the other for 78.6 miles but to be on the safe side I've hired a fantastic running coach and physio and have been training since the beginning of November 2017.
Having volunteered for Friendship Works (part of Family Action) for nearly 7 years I've seen the great work they do supporting 5 - 18 year olds in London. They provide mentors to children from underprivileged backgrounds to give them quality one on one time with an adult once a week. Having been matched with my mentee I have watched her grow from a nervous and shy 10 year old to an intelligent, confident and fun 17 year old.
