#the2020challenge
About
My beautiful seven year old son died after a short battle with cancer in 2014. The trust we set up in his memory provides vital support to local children with cancer and their families. I want to raise much needed funds to continue this work, and also to support two charities close to my heart - Make A Wish UK and Children With Cancer UK. Over the last 18 months, running has done wonders for my mental health. Each day without Harry is so tough that I couldn’t even begin to put how I feel in to words. It’s just an ongoing and never ending hell. Running gives me head space and time to think, to cry, to channel my emotions and to talk - yes I talk as I run, nattering away to my patient and kind running buddies!So my challenge is this... To run a half marathon every month during 2020, including the Great North Run and to run at least one full marathon in 2020 - I have a place in the Virgin London Marathon in April. I know this is going to be really hard and that it’s going to take all I've got mentally and physically and will not be easy in any way. If you can spare a little to help motivate me in 2020 I would be so very grateful, as will the three charities who will benefit from this challenge. Thank you 😊🐸❤️🏃🏼‍♀️ UPDATE MAY 2020... Well, who would have predicted the year 2020 would turn out to be so topsy turvey for us all. Corona Virus has been so devastating for so many families, and quite rightly has stopped all large events such as half marathons and marathons taking place. However, I have still been running a half marathon once a month around the lanes at home and my place in the London Marathon is secure, so I will be taking part whenever that may be - currently October 2020. I have yet to near about the GNR but fingers crossed it goes ahead.
