So excited right now. Last week, I got a place in the London Marathon for April 2013! I’ve wanted to run it since I saw my dad run it in 1983. After running Luton the other day, I decided I should jolly well get on with the London marathon, instead of dreaming about it. I can’t believe I’m finally going to get to do it! Chuffed is an understatement.
I am really thrilled to have a charity place running for the YMCA – an amazing charity doing some great work in building positive futures for vulnerable young people. I am incredibly thankful to Catherine at the YMCA who considered my application and interviewed me for the place. You rock!
Now, I need to get busy doing some serious training and some serious fund raising. I want to raise lots of money for the YMCA to help support the great work that they do, and I can’t wait to run London for them. It’s going to be such a great day.
