My story

[p]It will come as no surprise to those that know me that I signed up for the Virtual London Marathon back in February hoping to raise some funds for Shelter... and I'll be honest with you this all felt achievable back then when my optimism was high and I was fuelled by the desire to have a target to aim for to get back out on the streets running and get fit and healthy again!!! [/p][p]However a year on from experiencing Covid back in September 2020 and still feeling its residual impact especially when running just a few miles. As the months passed I found myself increasingly exhausted and unable to run very far at all and it increasingly felt like this one would slip away from me and I'd have to give up and put it down to experience! [/p][p]But it will also come as no surprise that I'm not one to give up very easily (even when perhaps I should!) and I don't like to feel I haven't tried my absolute best, therefore on Sunday 03 October I headed off at 5.40am to see what I could achieve! [/p][p]This time not driven by a burning desire to achieve anything other than finish, which was all my body was going to allow, or at least I hoped it would. And whilst, my mind kept flooding with doubt, my body held up and I managed to complete 26.2miles!!! And there is genuinely no-one more surprised than me that I did!!! [/p][p]It was my slowest, but oddly enough whilst the course wasn't as exciting as the streets of London not my most mentally challenging.... [/p][p]There were some wonderful people along the way, that kindly filled my water bottle up and wished me well; and the car 'toot toots' were so uplifting during the final 5miles....[/p][p]If you would like to join me and help support Shelter, your kind donations are warmly welcome.... xx[/p]
