The day before the day before the long run (that’s right 2 days) I had fully prepped my kit: checked, repaired and cleaned the costume/armour, prepped a first aid kit, prepared the clothes: 3 x pairs of trainers, 3 x pairs of socks, 2 x full under garments, prepped both stormtrooper helmets, bought LOTS of food and drink, packed energy bars and updated all social media. It was busy times. I also printed and laminated some posters for social media. I felt fit, I felt ready and I hadn’t touched a drop of alcohol in nearly 2 months.
Running the London Marathon + a 40 MILE CHALLENGE! for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK because Make A Wish is an Amazing Children's Charity
Before the costume
In 2015 I ran the London Marathon to raise money for the amazing charity CLIC Sargent. Completing my first marathon was such an amazing experience, I knew I had to do it again.
