Story

Right so I think it’s a bit too late to back out now so I guess I’M RUNNING THE BLOODY MARATHON. Oh my goooosh. This was one of those sign ups that I did thoughtlessly, with 0 expectations… well that backfired and here I am.

I'll be honest the thought of running 26 miles makes me feel a little ill. I’ve never run a marathon before, so naturally bricking it. I’d much prefer to eat 26 pizza slices - does that count as carb loading??

But what makes all of the above slightly bearable is knowing I get to raise money for such a worthy cause….

Last year I was so privileged to be named one of the ambassadors of the Wolves Foundation, the Wolverhampton Wanderer's official charity. Being a proud wolves girl and a football fan of course, I was so excited to get stuck in as much as I could. So it was a complete no brainer to run for them this year. I love the work the Foundation does and it genuinely makes such a difference within the community. Their work is all about empowering and enabling others to be healthy, active and confident.

So a BIG thank you for clicking on this link today and donating, it means the absolute world. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave words of encouragement and your donations.

I hope I do you proud and here’s to making it to the finish line!
