My story

[p]I’m running the London Marathon in April 2020. I’ll be running with 3 wonderful friends - Si, Jonny & Nic (photos below). Between us we will be raising over £8,000 for our chosen charities. I’m extremely proud to be running for an incredible charity - ‘Children with Cancer UK’ - the leading national children's charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. [/p][p]Did you know that EVERY day, more than 12 children are diagnosed with cancer in the UK? Can you imagine if one of these children was yours?[/p][p]In January 2017, one of Flo’s lovely classmates, Aaron, was diagnosed with Leukaemia. This devastating news changed Aaron’s life and the lives of his parents. They have been battling this illness for almost 3 years and are still on their journey. I regularly read their updates and can not get over the strength and determination the entire family shows, especially Aaron. He is remarkable.[/p][p]While no match for their incredible resilience and bravery, I hope that my marathon effort will in some small way help Aaron, and many other kids in his position. [/p][p]I last ran the London Marathon in 2006 - that was 13 years ago! Since then, I’ve become a mum to Sophia & Flo, gained two hernias, rather weaker pelvic floors and a penchant for wine, not exercise! Now I need to get fit! [/p][p]I’d love you to sponsor me as I train for this mammoth 26-mile run. Your donation will go directly to ‘Children with Cancer UK’. I really appreciate any donations you are able to make.[/p][p]Please also SAVE THE DATE of Friday 20th March for a Quiz Night fundraiser in London. More info to follow soon![/p][p]THANK YOU - Nat x[/p][p][i]Huge thanks to Aaron’s parents for allowing me to write a bit about him. I have also included some photos of him below. An amazing family.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]1st February 2020:[/u][/b][/p][p]UPDATE: My marathon training is well underway. I've nailed a couple of 10 and 12k's. I'm suffering from sore ankles but no other niggles. On Sunday 8th Feb, I'll be running 15k in prep for a half marathon in March. After that, I'm hoping to nail a 20-mile run before the marathon at the end of April. Thank you for all your donations so far - it's hugely appreciated. Love Nat. x[/p][p][b][u]26th Feb 2020:[/u][/b][/p][p]UPDATE: I've been out of action for 3 weeks due to a foot issue called Plantar Fasciitis. If you've ever had it you'll know it can be VERY sore. I've been icing it, seeing a physio and it's making good progress. For the last couple of weeks I've been aqua jogging and cycling, to keep up my fitness. Next week I'll try my first short run in a month with the hope of slipping back in to training without any further issues. Thank you for all the sponsorship you are leaving on here - it's amazing. Love Nat x[/p][p][br][/p]
