My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page![/p][p]So yes, that’s right, I am doing it!!! - the Virgin London Marathon 2014 has the number 22711 with my name on it… I’ve been to watch and support the event many times and have run one marathon in Blackpool 2012 (4.28.32). Training and running for London will help me get back to fitness after a quiet training year in 2013. I’ve bought new trainers and I’m starting from scratch as I haven’t run since March last year. I’ve chosen to run for a charity that means alot to me personally. I’m running to help raise awareness and funds for The Miscarriage Association.  Income from event sponsorship makes up more than a quarter of the M.A.’s £200,000 annual budget, so every penny of your sponsorship will really make a difference. [/p][p]Losing a baby in pregnancy is a heartbreaking thing to endure and is a very scary and sad experience.  Some of you will know that from personal experience. I know that this was my own experience when I sadly had a miscarriage earlier in 2013. The Miscarriage Association helps by providing information and support when it’s most needed and I want to help them continue doing that for others in this situation. It's still a hard subject to discuss with people but I’ve been really surprised how many people say that miscarriage is something that either they, or someone close to them, have been through.[/p][p]So, if you feel you'd like to support me, and The M.A., that would be brilliant!! Many thanks and I hope to see some of you on my way round on Sunday, April 13 2014 for that extra energy boost.
