When I started this blog properly in late 2011, I had only ever taken part in Race for Life 5k runs a couple of times. I had the intention of training myself to run a half marathon (Silverstone) and London Marathon in 2012. I didn’t get a place for London, so I entered myself into Edinburgh Marathon and carried on training with the intention of just running a few miles twice a week once I’d cross the finish line.
Fast forward to February 2013 and I have seven medals in my possession and still eating chocolate, but now training to be a Personal Trainer and running with Run Dem Crew, Run Dem Crew West as well as taking out some badass folks on a Sunday.
Running has been an extremely positive influence in my health and well being and have opened the door to enabling me to helping others realise that for themselves.
I am running London Marathon in April 2013 a day after my birthday and am again raising money for the MS Society.
