My story

[p]Hi, 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][p]This year I am running the marathon for the Mental Health foundation and my husband Scott will be joining me .Mental health is very little talked about and I think that you can agree that we all know someone or even ourselves who have effected by mental illness in some way . I myself have suffered with anxiety which can sometimes just sweep over me without warning and I just want to shut myself away from the world . Running has given me a new found confidence and although not every day is a good day there are far less bad days than good .[/p][p][br][/p][p]We have a son who also has been diagnosed with ASD and ADHD , he atrugglea when it comes to making friends and keeping them is tricky for him , his understanding of the world and feelings is limited and it saddens me that people struggle to see the good in him although we know it's there . My eldest son has also recently suffered a spell of anxiety where he shut himself away from the world and lost all confidence in himself and those around him . Watching the tears fall from a strapping young man was heartbreaking . [/p][p][br][/p][p]So this marathon is for all those close to us , Me , our boys , our friends and for anyone who had ever suffered at some point . Awareness of mental health issues need to be raised , too many people suffer in silence and need to know that there is help out there . [/p][p]"Your illness does not define you , your strength and courage does"[/p][p]Thank you again for all your support [/p][p][br][/p][p]London ...we're coming to get you [/p][p]Update ...unfortunately Scott has suffered an injury and is unable to run with me , so I will be flying solo and doing this with all the guts , grit and determination I can throw at it . Thank you all again [/p]

Well done Sara! A marathon is an *incredible* achievement, and you've raised a HUGE amount of money for what is obviously an important cause for you. I read your friend Anji's post about her experiences - it sounds like you've been rock to her. Well done!
