My story

[p][br][/p][p]15 years ago I ran the London Marathon in memory of my mum and as a way to cope with my grief. (The first & only running race I’ve ever done!) [/p][p]Today I have been married for 13 years and we have 3 beautiful children. [/p][p]In the summer of 2019 Ella, my eldest daughter, was taken seriously ill whilst we were on holiday, she had a major operation which saved her life, followed by another in late November. The doctors said that it was thanks to her being so fit & healthy that she was strong enough to cope and recover so quickly.[/p][p][i]Why have I told you all of the above?[/i] [/p][p]I wanted to share with you my motivation for deciding to run the London Marathon again![/p][p]The power that sport and physical activity has on health, fitness, physical and mental well-being is enormous. I have felt this throughout my life and it has helped me through the tough times as well as giving me many great times. Now, as a mum, I see how important it is to enabling my children to be healthy, happy and find the best in themselves.[/p][p]The Youth Sport Trust are a charity working to ensure that every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport. Their work reaches around 20,000 schools across the UK and they operate on a local, national and global level.[/p][p]On Sunday 3rd October I will run 26.2 miles, to once again remember my mum, to show my children that if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything and to raise money for a wonderful charity and help thousands of other children have the opportunity to experience and develop a life long enjoyment of sport and physical activity. [/p][p]I would be so grateful of your support! I’m not a runner, I don’t even enjoy it that much so it is going to be tough! Anything you are able to pledge in sponsorship would be amazing! Thank you! [/p]
