My story

[p]I always fundraise to support mental health, a cause I feel is still misunderstood and under supported globally. As science evolves we are learning more about the mind but sadly information is scarce and people are still battling through in silence, never truly understanding what is making them feel so dreadful inside, blaming themselves and hurting alone. I also believe in the link between exercise improving mental health.[/p][p][b][u]Please will you help me [/u][/b]& together we can try to change that?[/p][p]I use exercise as a medicine, it helps me to stay positive and I rely on the serotonin released to help balance my emotions and fight off the dreaded depression. [/p][p]Last year I completed the swimmer's marathon and this year I've decided to run one...oopps...I mean TWO! I am fundraising for London Marathon on 22nd April and I will also be running Paris Marathon on 8th April this year - as a marathon virgin I have no idea how my body will cope so I'm working hard to train and prepare.[/p][p]Both myself & Maudsley Charity are here to [b][u]promote positive change in the world of mental health[/u][/b]. Maudsley Charity supports innovation, research and service improvement, and very importantly they raise public awareness and understanding. [/p][p]If you want to chat any more about what I'm up to please get in touch, I can also share more information about the charity and the support available. [/p][p]Follow my journey on Instagram @lucyallen01 for pictures and stories of the training runs. The marathon race's are the end of a very long journey, I've been practicing for months and I've been edging up my distance every week...so think of me on your weekends when I'm out pounding the streets of London and training my mind to ensure what is yet to come.[/p][p][br][/p]
