After 8 unsuccessful applications to the London Marathon, I'm over the moon to have finally secured a place. I recently joined Linlithgow Athletic Club and was lucky enough to win a place through their ballot.

I've decided to support the charity that my brother and sister in-law set up after they lost their friend, Steven Sims, in 2013 to a rare blood disease, ITP.  Ali and Lydia have worked hard to raise money and set up this charity in Steven's name, which initially supported research into ITP and now funds and collaborates with experts to tackle the issue of concussion in Scottish rugby.

I'm enjoying most of the training so far..... It's a bit of a juggle with two young children and a husband training for a half ironman but I'm squeezing in the runs and feeling strong.  I'm not enjoying the cold baths or the drenching I got on my last run but I am definitely enjoying all of the guilt free chocolate eating.

Please dig deep and support this very worthy cause.
