Virtually Ready?

Posted on: 09 Sep 2020

Hey Runsters!

Long time, no speak. Turbulent times in the running world (as I’m sure you’re aware) and the London Marathon is no longer happening for us fun runners.

I was however given the option to complete the ‘marathon’ virtually and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. So on 4th October 2020 I’ll be lacing up my running shoes and hitting the street. Due to the stop-start, will it, won’t it effect that the indecision had on my training (plus the lockdown snacky snacks!) I am not really marathon ready so I’ll be jog-walking the 26.2 mile distance. Luckily I have a full 24 hours to achieve this feat.

This is in addition to running the London Marathon for real in either 2021, 2022 or 2023. I await confirmation of the exact year from the London Marathon help desk.

Soooooo, you lucky punters have got me on a 2-4-1 marathon deal. (Pass out to help out if you will). My charity, Muscular Dystrophy UK, has lost a huge amount this year through event cancellations. 

Due to this (and for the extra pound of flesh I’ll be giving) I’d be enormously grateful of your financial support for my 2 marathons in the space of one year. It’s not what I planned but I’m up for the challenge and you can support me by clicking the linky here:

Keep smiling and keep on runnin’.
