Having run 3 half marathons previously I wanted a bigger challenge. I have thought about this challenge previously and this time I have actually gone and booked all my runs for the year.

There are going to be personal benefits in this challenge for myself, hopefully some weight loss and an improvement in my fitness but the reason I started running was to help me manage my own mental health.

I will be running for the chairty Mind who raise awareness and support the many people who struggle with mental health issues on a daily basis. Myself and many people I know have and still have to deal with mental health issues, they do this behind closed doors and do not always feel confident enough to seek out support and help.

I am hoping that me completing this challenge will help raise awareness and provide the charity with funds to help them continue the great work that they do.

I hope you can support the charity financially during this challenge and please feel free to come and cheer or jeer me along at any of the runs detailed below.

Thank you in advance for your support.
