Team story

[p][span=color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;]I'm planning to run 50 marathons by the time I'm 50, obviously that's decades away.....ah....it's in 2021 so actually less than 5 years away from when I first decided to embark on this challenge in late 2016.[/span][lt]br style="color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;" /[gt][lt]br style="color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;" /[gt][span=color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;]The reason I'm doing this is twofold - firstly, I discovered running (and exercise!) quite late in life and I still can't quite get over the shock of how enjoyable it is and secondly (in con[/span][span=display: inline; color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;]trast to number one) I need a training plan with lots of races in it to stop me being lazy and slacking off! [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]I love to run with my 10 year old son Elliot accompanying me on his bike. He's also committed to ride a marathon a year with me and between us we decided that it would be good to use the challenge to raise some money for charity. We decided upon ASSERT - a charity that supports people (and their families) with Angelman Syndrome. The brother of one of Elliot's best friends has Angelman so it seemed like an obvious choice to us. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]My first marathon was London in 2011 (a year after I started running) and the second was London 2012. Shortly after that I got involved in organising a local trail marathon and as a committee we decided that we really should run our own route to make sure it was a good one! That started my love of trail marathons - a whole different ball game from running on the road and much more enjoyable for a runner like me who is never going to set the world alight with finish times. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]I have run London again since then but I definitely enjoy trail marathons best and living in Dorset I'm lucky that they're in plentiful supply! [/span][/p]
