My story

[p]I’m a Marathon first timer and I'm taking on the Virgin London Marathon 2019! I’m a little bit terrified but I know that your support will help me through it so thank you for visiting my page! I'm delighted to be running for the Disability Resource Centre. This is what they’re all about: [/p][p][i]“Empowering people of all ages who are affected by disability or health conditions to fulfil their potential and aspirations." [/i][/p][p]I think sport is an amazing way to do this and having visited the team at their base in Luton I was really struck by the work they do in their gym to help improve the mental and physical health of those who use it. It was inspiring. It’s just one area of the incredible work they do. Here’s their website - take a look for yourself![/p][p][url=https://www.drcbeds.org.uk/]https://www.drcbeds.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]I’d like to raise as much as I can for the charity and it will definitely help me to face those long, long training runs if you can donate a little money - you will make a difference! [/p][p]I’ll be updating this page throughout my training so you can keep up with my progress. [/p][p][b][i]December 2018[/i][/b][/p][p]On the 9th I’m running a 10km race as part of my training. It’s getting colder out there now and a bit slippery at times too! I’ve already hit one milestone this month with a 12km run - the furthest I’ve ever ran. It was a bit of a mental block to go beyond 10km but that’s done now. Phew! [/p][p][b][i]November 2018[/i][/b][/p][p]Up until this month, I’ve been concentrating on building up some strength in the gym and running a little bit. But now: I’m running! And throughout November I’ve clocked up 26.2 miles in my training! Hooray - a marathon! Now, I’ve just got to do that all in one go... eeeek! [/p]
