London’s Calling… Thanks to you! 

So, that’s it. It’s official. I’ve entered the ballot for my FIRST EVER marathon! And it’s thanks partly to you guys!  

The Virgin London Marathon 2017 will be my big 26.2mile goal before I turn 30 in the same year. For those who’ve signed up for their first marathon before, you’ll know that even the process of applying is scary. Will I get in? Won’t I? Well, I’m DEFINITELY doing it.. It will either be through the ballot or for my charity, Tenovus Cancer Care. 

I had the whole pre-race experience just signing up! Butterflies in the stomach, nervous sweats & questioning ‘Did I do the right thing?’ and ‘Shit! Can I even run that far??’ 

Well the answer to both of these questions is HELL YES!! 

  

I feel that you guys, whose blogs I follow & admire, are well & truly to blame. I’ve read about your experiences, followed your journeys & have been inspired to do it! So… A VERY BIG THANKS TO YOU!

All of your stories are so inspirational & I want to join the big leagues & take on this awesome challenge. 

Right, so next all I have to do is run it… !!

      1. That’s good. It is such a pressure. I’ve gone through the ballot but think I might have a reserve place with a charity as I was injured last year. They’ve just raised the minimum fundraising amount 😦
