My story

[p]Just over three years ago, struggling with burnout and looking for a way to really connect with who I am, who my tribe is and what I’m on this planet to do I started running. Running to tune out, but also running to tune in - taking the time to explore the beauty of a crisp autumn morning or to appreciate a summers sunset atop the highest local peak really helped me reconnect with myself and my purpose - and setting targets and raising money kept me focused when things really got tough. [/p][p]I run to maintain my own mental and physical health, to push my own boundaries and really learn how to look after myself and what I’m capable of. Never would I have imagined running marathons over mountains or running ultras for fun! Through this journey of recovery and discovery, I’ve uncovered real passion for wellness, personal performance and community, and want to share as much as I can with my own tribe and community.[/p][p]Enter Jessie May. I came across Jessie May through work as our charity partner and have been hugely moved by the amazing work they do in Bristol and the south west as a children’s hospice, not only for the children they work with but their amazing families too. Now with a daughter of my own, I feel even closer to the amazing support JM provide to our community. Wanting to do more, and seeking the motivation to take on a challenge like London, I’m supporting this amazing cause and hope that you’ll consider supporting it too. [/p][p]Now I know I can run a marathon, but have never run a road marathon before, so have set an ambitious target of 3:15 to really focus on the task at hand - with your support, the long hours and hard miles will be worth it. What do you think - can I do it?[/p]
