This Girl Can 'ENCOURAGE' Others to Run London Marathon too!

Where to start … What a day, What a weekend, What an experience! Steve and I collected our numbers from the Expo Friday afternoon, enjoying the atmosphere and of course buying some of the London marathon kit. Following on with a slap up meal at a lovely Italian restaurant not far from the Excel.

This Girl Can Run a Marathon Again or So She Thinks!

This Girl Can Run a Marathon Again or So She Thinks!

I spent most of last year complaining about training for a marathon and how tired I was so when the opportunity arose this year to apply for a Golden Bond charity place for London Marathon I thought why not...I always liked a challenge. I was so pleased to be accepted especially as I am running for a local charity called 'Encourage.' When I told my work colleagues and friends the good news they were...
