Story

I started running on Boxing Day 2016 having never run in my 48 years.

On 13/10/17, I amazed myself by completing the Manchester Half Marathon (13.1 miles).

My next challenge is to run 12 full Marathons (26.2 miles each) in 2019 and hopefully raise some money for the NSPCC along the way.

That will be at least 314.4 miles of actual Marathons and probably another 1700 miles of training which will take me about 370 hours running or the equivalent of running 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week for over 9 weeks.

So if you spare a few quid to help the children that the NSPCC work with who cannot even help themselves it will be fantastic and it will also help keep me motivated to put in the long hours and miles in training.
