My story

[p]I started running on 30th October 2020 to improve my fitness and get out of the house more! I joined Diamond Runners and ran in pairs or small groups to begin due to covid restrictions, but soon found myself part of bigger groups and pushing myself to complete challenges, timed miles, a 10k race, a 10 mile trail race. When I say race, it was never my aim to race against others, just to push myself, try something new and complete new challenges (and hopefully not come last!). I booked onto 2 half marathons and then when Northamptonshire Carers had charity places available for the London Marathon on 3rd October, I thought this was the ultimate challenge for 2021, to complete a marathon less than a year after I first started running![/p][p]I work for the Young Carers Team and it is important to me to do what I can to support carers. With the challenges faced by carers, the increased or new caring roles brought on by covid - and the isolation and reduced support to carry on caring, I thought I could do my bit to raise awareness and funds to support local carers.[/p][p]There are 70,000 unpaid carers in Northamptonshire - I am running a marathon, that's 26.2 miles, to show support!!! I estimate it will take me 7 hours, but I don't know how hard the second half of the race will be!![/p][p]Please, please donate to support my challenge and give me a reason to complete the marathon, but more importantly to support the unpaid carers who need support to keep going and keep supporting those who desperately need their care. Please also share my page far and wide to help raise awareness.[/p][p] [/p][p]I was part of the charity's team in June 2021 which ran the Vitality 10k with Young Adult Carers, as you can see in my picture![/p]
