I’ll be running for Children with Cancer UK the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer.
This is going to be my first marathon so I’m really excited (and nervous!) After completing the St Albans half marathon in June this year I knew I’d love to run a full marathon at some point…well, it’s now or never!
I wrote about my half marathon experience here and although the event was overall a positive experience I did find it very challenging! I think the experience of the half has given me a greater insight into how I’m going to tackle this new challenge and training is going to be key (obviously…)Currently…
– Running once or twice a week, shorter runs with friends.
– Pilates once a week.
– Training for a Christmas 10k with my best friend that is a month away now.
…So as you can see, there’s a lot to be done! I’m planning on working towards running every other day for the next few months to start building running back into my routine and then starting a proper training programme in the time leading up to the marathon.
I’ll be blogging about my training, nutrition, fundraising and everything in between so I hope you’ll join me in this journey :) I’ve also recently set up a Virgin money giving page where you can donate and find out more about how your money can help Children with Cancer so please take a look if you have the time. Thank you.
