When I started this journey, back in 2013 at the start line of the London Marathon and feeling sick with adrenalin and nerves, I had no idea that it was going to end 7 marathons later. If you had told me that at the time I would be have said you were crazy!! But it's given me the opportunity to travel the world, rethink my ambitions, dare to dream even bigger and believe I can achieve anything, plus meet some incredibly inspiring, warm and generous people along the way; The woman in Nike Store Manhattan who's husband set up a marathon in South Africa and who is still running marathons into her seventies, shivering with the man in a dark field in new york city who taught me about electrolites and amazed me with his 52 marathons in 52 states over two years, thousands of volunteers and runners who each have their own story to tell...... The list is endless!
Now I don't ask for donations very often, only for my first world major marathon in London and now for the last 26.2 miles of this incredible experience in Boston, so please donate as much as you can spare! This is my chance to give back to young people some of the confidence and aspirations that sport, and specifically running, has brought to my life. And such a fulfilling one it is these days! YEESSSS I've received the feedback that my facebook page looks like a permanent vacation....... Someone very special taught me that you should never let your troubles hold back. And I hope your donation teaches another young person the same thing!
