The road to London
I have been lucky enough to to have the opportunity to run this year's London marathon through the open ballot. I have chosen to raise some much needed funds for Atherton and Leigh Shelter for HoPe. Anyone could find themselves in a situation that needs support and for many different reasons. Atherton & Leigh Shelter for HoPe is a homeless shelter that aims to provide emergency night time accommodation and a hot meal to people who have nowhere else to sleep. Your donation will help us achieve this so thankyou. In 2017 we hope to open for 5 nights to start with and will be looking to go full time in the very near future and for that we need to try and raise some funds in order that we can get the right building, set it up so we can provide a safe, warm environment for guests plus feed what we fear will be even more people than ever before,
Running London marathon
This will be my first time attempting the 26.2 mile distance. So a real challenge for me. I am not a fast runner and completed my last half marathon race in 2hrs 40mins. I am just hoping to finish,not worrying about time but would like it under the 6hr mark. My training is well under way. I have joined my local parkrun group to keep me motivated and have planned some local 5k,10k and half marathon races leading up to the big day.
If you would like to join me on any training runs or races sign up below.
I will be adding to this as i book more races in.
