My story

[p]Sunday 26th April 2020 was the initial London Marathon date this year, now - rightfully postponed. [/p][p][br][/p][p]On this day, my aim is still to run/ walk/ limp/ crawl a marathon.. with a twist (literally). [/p][p]Attempting - 1688 laps of 25m garden to hopefully hit the distance of 42,195m. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I'm sure I won't be the only one to try this crazy idea. The seed was planted for me by the @runningchannel and fuelled by inspiration from Captain Tom Moore.[/p][p][br][/p][p]If anyone wants to contribute a donation, however small, it is hugely appreciated. For numerous reasons, I will be splitting any proceeds between:[/p][p]@bloodcancer_uk (always 👊🏻.. formerly Bloodwise/ and will be wearing the OG Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research t-shirt ) and @nhscharitiestogether (heros 🙌🏻) [/p][p][br][/p][p]Here's to a long day! Leggggoooo....![/p][p][br][/p][p]Ps - Training? ZILCH! ..for any distance.. on grass.. turning.. getting dizzy.. and dodgy shin (shock) 🤔😲🏃🏼?♀?😵😅🏁🙏🏻[/p][p]@londonmarathon @bloodcanceruk @nhscharitiestogether[/p][p]#savethecharities #savetheukcharities #twopointsixchallenge #nhscharitiesyogether #thankyounhs[/p][p]#gardenmarathon #flatlay #lockdownlife #stayhome #runningisagift #mindovermiles #mindoverlaps #mindovermarathon #letsgo[/p][p][br][/p]
