So this is slightly late going on here however i have, and still am doubting that i can complete this marathon lol.......Anyone who knows me knows that i can smash most fitness related activities and sports however i am not a natural long distance runner and find it extremely tough!!!!!!! so why am i doing this........for my amazing mum who i lost in Nov 2014 to Leukemia. I am hoping to raise £1000 for this great charity so that they can hopefully do more to stop blood cancers. To stop more people going through what we have and loosing amazing people to this terrible disease. Anyone we had the pleasure of knowing my mum knows what a truly strong and gritty determined lady she was. I think she passed a little of that on to me so on Marathon day i will be powered by true joany grit and determination! The Yorkshire Marathon is on Sunday 11th October at 8am, the start is in the center of the lovey city of York.
