Michelle's Marathon for Richmond House - 25th M...
Last year, a few days before my 29th Birthday, I decided that I would write a 30 List - 30 things I would like to do before I turned 30.
Two items on this list were "Run a Marathon" and "Raise Money for Charity".
I had already made contact with Richmond House and shortly after our "Friends of Richmond House" group was created, a small but enthusiastic group trying to make a little bit of difference to the quality of the latter years of the lovely residents within the home by means of organising events to raise funds for extra activities and stimulating events such as musicians and other helpful visitors to the home.
My training began on 3rd June 2013 and except for a few weeks through bad weather and ill health, I have ran on average 3 times a week, which has now increased to 4 times a week in the countdown to Marathon day in Edinburgh on Sunday 25th May 2014 (5 days before my 30th).
Please show your support to this small but very deserving cause.
It asks how much I am looking to raise....I have put a random but realistic figure as it wouldn't accept "as much as possible" :)
