I only went and ran 26.2 miles….

What a day.

Firstly, thank you SO MUCH to EVERYONE who has kindly sponsored Jonathan and myself. We set an ambitious target of raising £2620 for the wonderful Air Ambulance. We (with your kind help and support) absolutely SMASHED IT, with the target at over £2800 currently, with still a couple more sponsorships to come in. This is superb. It means such a lot to me and the charity.

So….onto today…..we only went and bloody did it. 26.2 miles in a time of 4h22 which we are both thrilled with. What an achievement. It’s amazing what you can push your body to do. Well done Jonny, and a pat on the back for me.

Feel emotionally, physically and mentally drained. Have showered and had a cup of tea, and starting to relax now.

Thanks to my parents, the Horsfall’s and the Appleton’s for the encouragement (and banners) along the route. Your support was greatly received.

It’s right to not take my shiny medal or my new t-shirt off all week isn’t it?…..

So very proud of my journey of the last few years with my weight, and over the last 8 months with my fitness. Sorry for all boring updates over my training on social media. I promise not to bombard you anymore.

Thanks to everyone who tweeted, text, whatsapped, FaceTimed, called, emailed etc today and over the weekend. You’re all fab.

More importantly, thank you on behalf of The Air Ambulance Charity.

God bless you all

Xx

Hard Work & Dedication

As many of you will know, just over 4 years ago I was a ‘fatty bum bum’. Weighing in at 19 stone. A poor diet. Very rarely exercising (I couldn’t run a bath, let alone a race!). The photo proves it (I hate this photo).

But hard work and dedication pays off. I’m finishing the year feeling fit and healthy. Running 25+ miles a week. A healthy diet, and weighing in at 12 stone. Quite simply I feel awesome.

2018 will be an exciting year for me, as I will compete in the Blackpool Marathon in April. I sure with my positive mental attitude and concise training plan, I will succeed.

Its just proof that you can really do anything if you put your mind to it.

I love the saying:

“If you believe you can, or you believe you can’t, you’re probably right!”

Here’s to a healthy and happy 2018.
