16 weeks till the big one!

Welcome to my first ever blog – never thought I’d ever write one, but it does you good to get out of your comfort zone now and again so here it goes!

I’m hoping you’ll stay with me during my training and running of the London Marathon in April this year. This is new territory for me, I’ve been a runner since I was eight with a few interludes but never ventured to the big one, till now, since the powers that be at London Marathon Towers finally pulled me out of the ballot – only took 9 goes – that’s staying power for you!

I’ll keep you updated of my training, what I’m supposed to have done, what I have actually done and all the other bits in between…like the plantar fasciitis I’ve almost got rid of and my attempts to run around it.

The ‘official’ training plan starts tomorrow and I’ll explain more in a future post. 16 weeks to go…

Another major reason for this blog is to highlight the charity that I will be fundraising for by running the London Marathon. SANDS are a charity that have helped some very close friends of mine in recent years and apart from the Race for Life I rarely use my running/triathlon exploits to raise money so as this will be a difficult challenge for me to complete the marathon, I know that this will be nothing compared to the pain others have had to and still do endure  and for that reason this is my way of  showing how much I care.
