My story

[p]So, last year, I took the very difficult decision to defer my 2020 London Marathon Place with Deafblind UK. Covid-19 had placed too much pressure on every aspect of life and, for my own personal health, I needed to defer my place. Training for a marathon and fundraising for one are huge commitments. And, by March last year I was at 20 miles and raised a good deal for Deafblind UK. I would love to raise the remaining £800 I had committed to for the charity. And I would really love to honour my promise to all who have donated to the charity and supported my running by completing (in one piece) the London Marathon 2021! [/p][p]Running for me is more than exercise...it's peace, it's challenge, it's being outdoors and learning just how resilient we can be when life is hard, or the weather is pants, or you've run 21 miles and your legs feel like lead but you've got to find a little bit more (sometimes this last thing can also happen on a short run!). I'm not a fantastic marathoner, I'm not super speedy. But I put in the hours and the training - running and strength training and the eating (!) - and now I'm 43, I put in the stretching time too! [/p][p]So please, putty please with a cherry on top, help get me around the 26.2 mile circuit and to the finish line with your friendship and moral support and if you have some spare pennies too, Deafblind UK will thank you forever as will I! [/p][p]Thank you so much gorgeous people. [/p]

Amazing well done Anna. You’ve inspired to get back into my own running shoes, albeit I’ll be aiming for a half marathon, not a mental full one just yet!!! I’m off out tonight! Xxx
