My story

[p]Last September I got a place for the 2020 London Marathon, having never run more than a 10km at the time it was a huge challenge. I started my training and a month before I was going to run the famous 26 miles from Greenwich to The Mall the event was cancelled for obvious reasons.[/p][p]With the event being cancelled Headway (my chosen charity) would be getting significantly less donations than before so I decided to push ahead and on 26th April 2020 I ran my first marathon solo. It was easily the toughest thing I have done and I pushed myself to my limits to get a finishing time of 3 hours and 31 minutes! Now with the event going ahead as another virtual marathon I have decided to run it solo again on Sunday 4th October.[/p][p]I am running this marathon raise as much money and attention to make as much of a difference to this charity as possible. Earlier this year I had to give up my favourite sport rugby due to recurring head injuries and, after seeing a neurologist, it made me aware of how easy it is to get a brain injury and how lucky I have been.[/p][p]Headway aim to promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provide information, support and services to survivors, their families and carers. They help people across the board with support and knowledge, and aim to raise the awareness of brain injuries and how to prevent them.[/p][p]Charities need our help now more than ever, with major fundraising events cancelled across the world every penny counts are the moment. If you would please donate any money you can it would be amazing and I will appreciate it immensely! Thank you![/p][p][br][/p][p]PS. I will still be running the actual route in the proper event in April 2022 so that’s just three marathons for the price of one![/p]
