My story

[p]Over the past few years, my boyfriend and best friend in the world has been doing his best to manage his mental health. It has been one of the most incredibly challenging things I have ever been through but I am so proud of him for where he is today and for his motivation to get people talking.[/p][p]He took on the challenge to raise £5000 for MIND by running 3 marathons in 12 months (he wanted to do 1 a week for 26 weeks but thankfully decided that this was plenty!).[/p][p]Despite being inspired by his efforts and actually enjoying accompanying him on some of his recovery runs for marathon 1 of 2, I felt pretty comfortable with leaving race day to him. I went through a few years of wanting to do one myself but that desire has definitely dissolved! Over Christmas this year, I was offered a place to run in the London Marathon 2018 and in a moment of madness, despite no desire to get involved, I said yes. And then signed up for the Hackney half a month later. So now I am running a marathon and a half... cool. My biggest concern is getting to the start line without injury but my greatest intention is to give it my all, and to be there every step of the way in support of Will (although he wont let me run with him in case it shows him up).[/p][p]Lots of you may know Will, and some of you may not. I am inspired by his courage and motivation - check out his story and if you can contribute to his total, that comes before mine. If you can contribute to mine too then even better![/p][p]https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/willsebastian[/p]
