My story

[p]After having to withdraw from VLM 2018 due to a car crash I am delighted to have a place for 2019. [/p][p]2 years have now passed since losing James but my goal is the same:[/p][p]• To raise as much money as is possible to help Tommys to continue their vital research into miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death.[/p][p]• To help fund their incredible support they provide to those who sadly will join the horrendous “club” that is baby loss.[/p][p]• To help raise awareness of the work that Tommys do.[/p][p]This will be my second marathon I have ever run but that doesn’t make my physical task any less daunting. There is something to be said for the luxury of naivety when such a task lay ahead of you, however I learnt ALOT throughout the training and the marathon itself in 2017 and hope to put those lessons to good use this time round. I am still on the quest to find the magic answer to keep my feet blister proof beyond the 9 mile mark but knowing you have a team of supporters behind you who helped you reach your fundraising goal makes my part running the course that little bit easier! [/p][p]So... thank you for supporting me in this challenge and I look forward to both running and fundraising for Tommys at VLM 2019!!! [/p]
