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. Unfortunately I had an ongoing calf strain that prevented me from training the way I needed for this distance and I was advised to defer to 2020. Of course I was disappointed to miss out on this fab event in 2019 but I fully intend to smash it in 2020! I have had physiotherapy and worked with a Personal Trainer to help me with my calf issues and my training has already begun. I am going to continue to fund raise for the amazing Ability Bow charity and I will be planning quite a few more charity walks 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 clients, friends and family for supporting me so far and hope to make you all proud at the 2020 London Marathon....Elaine[/p][p]Ps, a special thank you to Caron Brooks who has been doing Tropic facials for donations and so far has raised £100 to add to my target. Thank you so very much Caron xx[/p]
