My story

[p]I have always wanted to do the London Marathon for as long as I can remember, so after signing up to do this in 2019, I had every hope of realising my dream this year. Unfortunately I have had an on going calf strain that has prevented me from training the way I need to for this distance and I have been advised to defer to next year. Of course I am disappointed to miss out on this fab event this year but I fully intend to smash it in 2020! I am going to continue to fundraise for the amazing Ability Bow charity and with an extra year now, I will be planning quite a few more charity events to exceed my pledge to them. [/p][p]I wanted to do this challenge for a charity I could really get behind and believe in and Ability Bow ticked all the boxes. It's a small charity and based in East London where they help those with disabilities and debilitating conditions to undertake physical exercise on specially adapted equipment in some cases, all while encouraging social interaction. This in turn helps not just their fitness, but their confidence too. Well, that's what I love! [/p][p]Running my Nordic Walking business for the past 9 years I see every day the benefits of what being surrounded by supportive and positive people can do. Encouraging each other and listening is as much a benefit as the physical exercise. Ability Bow delivers all of this and much more.[/p][p]I want to thank all my friends and family for supporting me so far and hope to make you all proud at the 2020 London Marathon....Elaine [/p]
