I’m running the London Marathon 2015!

I’m elated and ecstatic to be running the 2015 London Marathon. The reason why I’m so overjoyed this time is because I am running for the MS Society which is one that’s close to my heart and passionate about!

Great Northern Run

I completed the Great Northern run in September for MS and that once again gave me the hunger for running. A few weeks later, I read this very inspiring post by The Healthy Bluebird and I just knew I had to enter again. I missed the ballot entry for the marathon so I applied to the charity direct and emailed/tweeted/added extra pages to my application/phoned…daily… and I think my tenacity paid off!

I almost fell off my chair when I got the call to say that I had got one of their bond places. Hallelujah! I have already set up my Just Giving page and I honestly can’t wait!
