“I’m going to run a marathon before I’m 40.” She said! 

Well this is it...Training has begun and I’m seriously motivated to do this.  Despite the fact many people run marathons every day around the world and some incredibly awesome people run marathons regularly, this is going to be HUGE challenge for me.  I have been a regular runner now on and off for around 10 years and love being a part of my local running club, Tadcaster Harriers. But it’s fair to say that I don’t find running easy and I suffer greatly from the mental demons who pop up in your head and do their very best to convince you to stop running! I’m determined to achieve this personal challenge and to raise vital funds along the way for Home Start, York.  

Since becoming the editor for Families magazine, Vale of York, I came across the charity earlier this year.  They do a fantastic job in both raising money and in supporting the many families of York who need a helping hand. 

If you can support me in any way, then please donate today.  Feel free to wish me luck, but I think I’ll need a little bit more than Lady Luck on my side! 

Here’s to the Manchester marathon - I’m coming to get you!
