More about me
Two years ago, I was a serial non-runner and never thought running was for me. Then my twin sister suggested we train for the London Marathon which we ran last year for the first (but I hope not last) time. I never ever thought I would do it, and had it not been for my sister's persuasiveness and the fact that I wanted to raise money for The Children's Trust, a wonderful charity which looks after very severely disabled children, I probably wouldn't have gone through with it.
I've written a book about my experiences called: Running on Empty:Diary of a Marathon Mum which I am self publishing in the next few weeks. For more information you visit my website at www.marathonmum.com
I hope to inspire other no hopers like me, as well as raising more money for The Children's Trust.
