My story

[p]I love keeping fit and I am looking forward to the challenge that the London Marathon will set me.[/p][p]The physical preparation and training has been the biggest challenge I have ever encountered. I will be celebrating my 40th Birthday a few weeks before, so am no spring chicken.[/p][p]This level of Running has been really good for me and bizarrely I have more energy after a run than before. I find the sense of achievement I get after a successful run makes me feel great.[/p][p]The added incentive for me is to raise vital funds for a charity that I have supported many times in the past 'VICTA' (Visually Impaired Children Take Action)[/p][p]VICTA provides support to children and young people who are blind or partially sighted and their families.[/p][p]VICTA was founded in 1987 by a group of parents who came together to support each other with the day-to-day issues of looking after a visually impaired child. They provided emotional support and worked together to ensure that their children were given the same opportunities as sighted children. They also supported each other through the minefield of obtaining the right educational provision for their children.[/p][p]Thank you to the people that have supported me so far and please look out for me on the Television.[/p]
