My half marathon is almost here!

Charity/ personal/ Running

You might remember back in January when I had a few too many glasses of Prosecco and signed myself and my other half up to do a half marathon, I couldn’t even run a kilometre back then and quickly regretted the decision! Not one to back out of a drunken mistake I actually decided that hell yes I can do that and started on a training programme to get me across the finish line! 13.1 miles is a BLOODY LONG WAY and the time is almost here for me to actually do it! Our summer has revolved around training, training and more training and to date I have clocked up over 650KM. I’m tired, really tired but I know I can do this!


My life is complete different to what it was two years ago. Two years ago I embarked on a weight loss journey and managed to lose over 4 stone, so training for a half marathon this year has really helped with keeping me fit and keeping the weight off. I really love getting out and running and actually really enjoy the longer runs. My longest distance so far is 17km so I need to run another 4km on top of that on the big day!

My big day is this coming Sunday (24th September) and I am pretty terrified right now!

If you would like to sponsor me for my half marathon you can do so here…

JustGiving - Sponsor me now!

I would really love your support so please consider sponsoring me it really does help spur me on knowing that I am running for such a good cause! I am raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support because no one who has to deal with cancer should go through it alone.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported me so far by either sharing my posts or sponsoring me. I’ll be back next week to update you all with how I did xxx

    Congratulations on your great achievement! and I have my fingers crossed foy you to meet your next goal and finish the half-marathon. I really admire everyone who takes part in these runs I cannot imagine I would be able to run such a distance. (This reminds me I need to buy some sneakers and start running again my 3 or 4 km twice a week)..

    What a fantastic cause to raise money for. I have done a half marathon before and I didn’t so enough training so found it very difficult to get round. You sound like you’re well ready though. Good luck ??

    Wow, what an inspiration you are. So many would have just laughed it off and said they were drunk, but you’re going for it. Way to go you, loads of luck for Saturday! x
