Thinking of WALKING it?
“I was never going to be able to run a marathon last year, but I still wanted to do something challenging. I can’t tell you how amazing that day was and the emotions I felt when walking this route I had planned from my house to central London. I listened to happy music, podcasts about pushing yourself and it just motivated me on.
I had the app in my ear cheering me on at each mile (WOW how I loved that!) and the many other walkers/ runners passing me on route with a wave and a ‘You can do it!’.
It was tough but I had accomplished something massive and I will always remember that day.
I managed to raise just over £1,000 and I am so proud of myself” BeccaLet's walk it!

Are you crazy enough to RUN it?
“I only really got into running back in 2012 when someone said the immortal words “I bet you can’t” in relation to a local half-marathon event. Being ever so slightly (emphasis on ‘ever so’) competitive I took on the challenge like a pro. Ok, an ever so slightly chunky and middle-aged pro, but like a pro none-the-less.
Nine years later and I’m still at it and although still a little chunky, and almost a decade older, I keep on running. In fact, I’m now somewhat addicted to it and have added trail running / mountain races and full marathons to my original “I bet you can’t” staple half-marathons.
Although I do now cover 100 miles a month as a means to feed my addiction (there’s worse ones I guess) you certainly don’t need to do anything like that to get into running” MarkLet's run it!
