This blog is about what it takes to become a 2013 Virgin London Marathon runner. More specifically, what it takes for me – an asthmatic buxom girl, in her mid 30s, with dodgy knees and an aversion to running – to achieve that seemingly impossible goal of running 26.2 miles. That’s the length of 401 football pitches or 105 laps round the London Olympics Athletics Stadium.
I will be talking about anything related to running; from clothing, technology and fitness to food, music and running routes.
I’m running to raise money for Asthma UK.
Thanks for joining me on this exciting and daunting challenge.
