So it was 7 a.m. and I was half way through my challenge, I had already run 50 kms (31 miles). The time for my first 26.2 miles had beaten my previous 3 marathons (2016, 2017 & 2018). It’s safe to say I had been flying. However, as soon as I started running on the country park paths of Black Park I knew I had done the right thing by smashing as many miles as I could at Pinewood Studios. This terrain was far more tricky and full of potential trip hazards. I’ve fallen over in the armour before, it’s never a good thing.
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.
