My story

[p]So here we are, in only a few days I will be taking on the Kielder Marathon.[/p][p]26.2 miles around one of the most beautiful places in the UK in what will undoubtedly be one of the hardest challenges I have ever faced.[/p][p]Not only that, but I am so close, and determined to complete my 500th mile during the day. Over the course of the year I have faced many different challenges including:[/p][p]RED January ? [/p][p]The Brass Monkeys Half Marathon ?[/p][p]The Duergar Nightcrawler ?[/p][p]The Mighty Deerstalker ? (cancelled by the beast from the east)[/p][p]The Blaydon Race ?[/p][p]The Derwent Reservoir Trail Run ?[/p][p]Tough Mudder Scotland ? [/p][p]The Great North 10k? [/p][p]The Gateshead Trail 10k ?[/p][p]The Northumberlandia Trail Run ?[/p][p]&[/p][p]The Great North Run ?[/p][p]Along the way, I have seen some great sights, met some awesome people who I can happily call friends and found a new confidence in myself and just what I can achieve.[/p][p]Every step has been for the good people at Attitude is Everything, hoping to help raise funds and awareness for the outstanding work they do for deaf and disabled music fans. Please give them a look, because live music is for everyone.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Hi guys,[/p][p]2018 is the 5th year that I have been supporting the awesome charity Attitude is Everything. This year, I will still be tackling Tough Mudder with the rest of the team. But, that will just be a small part of my year-long challenge, roughly 2.5% of it , which is terrifying![/p][p]This year, over the course of the year, my challenge is to run at least 500 miles for AiE. Taking in as many organised runs as possible including the longest distance i will of run to date when I take on the beast that is the Kielder Marathon in October.[/p][p]Keep checking back and I will keep you updated with all of my events, as and when I book myself up for them. But so far I am registered for the following runs:[/p][p][br][/p][p]Jan - Brass Monkeys Half Marathon - York[/p][p]Feb - The Duergar Nightcrawler - Simonside Hills[/p][p]Mar - The Mighty Deerstalker - Rat Race - Innerleithen[/p][p]Oct - Kielder Marathon - Kielder[/p][p][br][/p][p]If you know of run or event that I could take on as part of my challenge, please drop me a message and let me know. Anything will be considered.[/p][p][br][/p][p]So yeah! 500 miles in a year? I'm no runner, but i should be by the end of it.[/p][p]Please check out the awesome work that AiE do for deaf and disabled fans of live music, and please consider sponsoring me along the way. They need your support, and I need your motivation.[/p]
