The 2021 London Marathon isn’t for another 6 months and two weeks, but that doesn’t mean it’s too soon to start building a decent base fitness: gradually upping the mileage, strengthening all the parts of me that I know will hurt the most ¾ into the longer training runs (I’m looking at you hips!) and shedding the lockdown padding.
Nor is it too soon to start fundraising for the charity I will be running for: The Children’s Society: Having been blessed with a great childhood myself, there are few beliefs that I hold more profoundly than that:
Whatever may be happening in the Big Bad World, every child and young person deserves a good childhood!
We all know that unfortunately it doesn’t always work like that. Which is why I am so proud and excited to be supporting the Children’s Society in their fight for the hope and happiness of young people when it’s threatened by abuse, exploitation and neglect.
Of course I cannot do it alone: In my corner I have an amazing coach, a family who loves me even when I come home covered in mud and sweat and, I hope, you too. So please, head over to my JustGiving page and give generously!
