My story

[p]I spent 4 months last year training for the London Marathon, which I was running on behalf of MK Snap, determined to make the most of the experience as I knew that this would not only be my first ever marathon, but also my last. A very sore knee meant that I had to limp, run and hobble around the 26 mile course, which was the most amazing day ever and I even managed to raise over £3000 for MK Snap. 2 weeks later I had booked myself onto the Birmingham International Marathon, which I ran last October and I think it is fair to say that I haven't really stopped running since then![/p][p] So I have set myself the challenge of completing 2 marathons in 3 weeks this year. I am running Brighton on April 15th and then on May 7th I am running the MK Marathon on behalf of MK Snap. Although this isn't my first attempt at 26.2 miles, the idea of running 2 marathons in such a short space of time, when I have only been running for 3 years and when I am not getting any younger is definitely a daunting one![/p][p]For those of you who don't know, MK Snap is a charity who provides education, training, life skills and opportunities for adults with a learning disability. It has had an enormous impact on many individuals and their families and I am extremely proud and honoured to be a Vice Chair of the charity. I have seen the benefit that it brings to individuals who are supported to grow and develop in a caring and highly individualised environment.[/p][p]I know that I received huge support from family, colleagues and friends who sponsored me last year, but MK Snap continues to need financial support in order to be able to carry out the fantastic work that it does and so I am asking you to see if you would be prepared to support this great organisation once again by supporting my latest challenge.[/p][p]On behalf of the learners, the staff and the volunteers I would like to thank you for your donation.[/p][p][br][/p]
