My story

[p][b]**UPDATE** After already training for one marathon, that didn't end up happening, I've hung up my trainers for a little while, before I train again for the 2022 London Marathon. Until then I plan to raise as much as I can for the Down's Syndrome Association. Thank you already for all your support and generosity!![/b][/p][p]I will be running the London Marathon for the Down’s Syndrome Association. When I found out I had one of their charity places I burst into tears, I was a mixture of extremely excited and absolutely terrified! I’ve never run further than 10k so this is a huge challenge for me. I join in the 5K Park Run, as and when I can persuade Laurence to get out of bed early on a Saturday morning, and run 5K every so often at lunch time with some of the girls from work, but never in the rain or cold! That’s all about to change though… Bring on the early mornings, the cold evenings and the soggy trainers![/p][p]As I’m sure many of you know (I do go on about him a lot..!) my brother Adam has Down Syndrome. When Adam was born my mum tried to explain what Down Syndrome was to my sister and I at the age of 3 and 6, however we didn't really understand and to us he was just Adam our little brother. For us it has been like that ever since, we wouldn't change him for the world and I think we would both agree he has made us who we are today! [/p][p]The Down's Syndrome Association is an invaluable source of information for my family and especially my Mum. It can be a lonely, confusing and challenging world so it's really key that she has a network of other people she can speak to and learn from. I really want to do as much as I can to pay them back for the support they give to families just like us and to be able to reach out even further. My brother is my world and I want to thank every single person from The Down's Syndrome Association who has helped my family in any way, shape or form. [/p][p]So here goes... just a casual 26.2 miles for Adam! [/p]
