My story

[p]Hi, [/p][p]Many of you will know I had to give up playing football at the age of 21 due to a patella dislocation. And then in 2003 I broke my other leg and dislocated that knee (on top of the full break, that hurt!!) at karate leaving me with 2 screws in my femur under my kneecap. [/p][p]I have always stated that I don't run. My knees stopped me playing football and getting to karate black belt (my kicks were rubbish). Golf seemed to be the only sport I could play. [/p][p]But then Lisa joined Redway Runners in MK. After much arm twisting I signed up for MK Parkrun in October 2016 and really enjoyed the 5km run. I took it easy for a while fearing my knees. [/p][p]Me being me and super competitive I couldn't leave it at 5km could I!?!? What could I do in my 50th year?? So I signed up for MK half marathon in March 2017 and omg MK Marathon in May 2017. First half and full I did in 1hr51 and 4hr08 respectively. Considering I pulled my Achilles in the half and that slowed my marathon training I am absolutely over the moon with both times. Very proud of myself.[/p][p]So...... I'm 50 years old, not getting younger and I have always wanted to take part in the London Marathon. I also want to do something for the local community. [/p][p]I have visited MK SNAP. [b]MK Special Needs Advancement Project[/b]. It was a humbling visit. I loved it there. Friendly, supportive, loving and caring. They have a learning centre in Walnut Tree in MK and it is brilliant. Funding is so important. It costs £58 for a learner to attend for 1 day. To be representing the charity and the learners is a real honour for me. I will do my utmost best for them. I want to work with a local charity so I can see the difference I am making.[/p][p]Thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
