Why I run

Why I run #3: For the adventure

On Sunday I had a lot of time to think about running. Four hours, two minutes and forty-two seconds to be precise. I’ve decided that one of the reasons I’ve run seven marathons is because I have a tendency to say “yes” to things and worry about the details later. When I was given the chance to run the London Marathon for Leonard Cheshire Disability I barely thought about it before I said “yes”. What followed was an adventure where I made new friends, discovered new places, learnt about important causes, went on live TV, and finally completed 26.2 miles surrounded by non-stop, deafening support.

Thank you London.
