My Story

Hello all!

Firstly, apologies for the lunge profile pic... (there is no explanation with this apology)

I am running this Marathon for a couple of reasons... the main one is to raise money for the lovely cause, Make Some Noise. It raises money for smaller, unsung, brilliant charities that help disadvantaged children - these charities just don't get heard... and they really need to.

The other reason... is that I'm categorically not a runner! I've never desired to run a marathon, I don't enjoy running, I have certainly never caught got the 'running bug' and, to top it off, I run like Phoebe Buffay (I've really tried adjusting my gait to save race-day embarrassment). I've also got a dodgy knee which will make a lovely addition.

And this is the reason I want to do it! What better way ridiculously challenge one's giraffe-like body then to make it run 26 miles further than it's designed to?!

So THANK YOU for donating - I will do you proud on the day (I hope!)

Thank You
