My story

[p]I have always loved running, but had let it slip over the last couple of years due to work pressures and a lack of time (all illegitimate excuses however!.) When COVID hit and I was stuck with homeworking and very little to do I decided that it was about time I started running again. I threw myself into it, and quickly got accustomed to getting out and just enjoying myself. I needed to find ways of motivating myself so I signed up to several virtual challenges to keep my legs moving and improve my fitness. Before I knew it, I had run my first half marathon which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was lucky enough to spend 18 years of my life living in Malawi so when I read that Open Arms Malawi had secured a place in this years London Marathon I jumped at the opportunity to sign up. Not only is this a massive challenge for me to train for (it will be my first marathon) it is also an excellent opportunity to raise money to support the communities of a country I love and holds a special place in my heart. Running for Open Arms Malawi is definitely motivating me to run and train more so I can be at my very best on race day! Knowing that I can raise money for a worthy cause, knowing it will make a huge difference, whilst doing something that I enjoy is really special to me. [/p][p][br][/p]
