My story

[p]In March 2018 I will be combining my two favourite hobbies in one event – Guiding and running![/p][p]Having run my first marathon in 2017 I decided to stick with shorter distances from now on, and raise money for an organisation that’s very important to me.[/p][p]I’ve been a Guide leader for almost ten years and during that time have made some fabulous friends and lasting memories. In 2017 I went on my first international trip to Our Chalet in Switzerland, and had the most amazing time; learning a few things about myself and the history of the family to which I belong: Girlguiding.[/p][p]I even managed to squeeze in a couple of marathon training runs in Adelboden while I was there. I think the mountain air and steep hills did me good![/p][p]With 10 million girls in 150 countries, Guiding provides a space for girls to grow and reach their potential, one of the many reasons why I’m a Guide and lead others in learning and experiencing new things, making friends and working together.[/p][p]Please help me raise funds for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, so the Guiding Movement can continue it’s global work.[/p][p]With just 11 days to go, my training has been going well. I did my last 10 mile run with my marathon buddy at the weekend and I'm now tapering for the big day. After joining the LLHM runners Facebook page, I've been able to connect with lots of others, some of which are surprisingly local! We're wearing yellow sweatbands for the race, so we can recognise each other. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far, your donations are very much appreciated.[/p]
