So on Sunday I once again headed down to London to help capture the fun and adventure of the London Marathon, and also cheer along friends who were taking part.
I have been going for nearly every year for the last five on behalf of Scout Radio to interview and take photos, I always find it an inspirational day and back when I first started I even discussed that I was inspired to want to run the Marathon before I am 40!
Since then I have tried to start running three or four times, I normally get a few weeks in and then give up or just stop, I have struggled with the commitment.
However, something has changed! Six weeks ago, inspired by a few friends that I think were doing a 10 mile or half marathon (I forget) I started to run again! Downloaded the Couch to 5k app, voiced by radio presenter Joe Whiley and off I went!
Sunday whilst at the Marathon I made the decision, that now is my time, I want to work and train hard and hope to run the London Marathon in two years time!
I know it’s going to be a hard journey, and still not 100% sure if I can even run that far or for that long, but only time will tell, I am determined and hope I have the commitment to see me through, that’s also why I am saying two years instead of one, I don’t want to overcommit myself.
I want to go running in lots of places, different park runs, half marathons and the like and would really welcome invites to go running and do events with people.
I also want to pick a charity or a two to take along on this journey, but that’s all still to be decided.
For me the next step if my first Park Run soon and then go forward from there!
