My story

[p]What does a 50+ man do during a Global Pandemic? [/p][p]Start running.....I am not a runner, or more accurately I am not an athlete. I have spent more than 25 years organising, marketing and delivering running events for people, and yes I am also that bloke with the microphone cheering you home across the finish line (sometimes dressed as penguin) [/p][p]However, I had never actually run in a an event. Like many I had blamed dodgy knees, or time to train. But in 2020 with time on my hands I completed Couch to 5K, then a 10K and in October I did the Virtual London Marathon, all of this in 6 months.[/p][p]I have suffered with anxiety and depression and I knew that with all the issues connected to Lockdown I needed to do something, The link between physical activity and positive mental health is well documented - and so my journey began.[/p][p]With the help of friends and family I set out (Virtually) to complete the 870 miles of the Wales Coastal Path - each day adding to the total and feeling better in myself. [/p][p]I chose to raise money for the Movember Foundation, and was delighted to become an Ambassador for them.[/p][p]After completing the Virtual Marathon, I knew I wanted to try for a place in London, to keep my training up and my head in a good place.[/p][p]I have chosen to continue to support the amazing work Movember do for mens health, both Physical and Mental. In addition I will be supporting the research work of Cardiff University into Cancer and Mental health.[/p][p]My journey started with 1small-step to make a difference for me, and also for so many others.[/p][p]Thank you for your support[/p][p]Nic -[/p]
