Story

As you all know I have been lucky enough to run the London Marathon on a few occasions before but 2018 is an extra special London Marathon for me. 

Not only will it be my last marathon as 'Miss Bailey' (!!!) but I will also be attempting to break a Guinness World Record by running the marathon dressed as a cave woman! 

You might think that is an easy challenge until you discover that I have to run with a club that weighs 1kg for 26.2 miles! That's equivalent to running with a bag of sugar in my hand.

So given that it is extraordinary marathon, I have decided to raise money for Stubbington Ark - a separately registered branch of the RSPCA covering Portsmouth and Southampton, providing care and rehoming for all manner of animals. 

My faithful marathon training buddies are our 2 dogs and it upsets me to think that people could be cruel and mistreat animals.  Stubbington Ark have more than 500 animals on site at any one time and are self-funded, relying heavily on local fundraising.
