I’m honoured to be running London Marathon in October 2022 for the Stroke Association.

40 years in the making

London Marathon 2022 will be an incredibly special & meaningful experience because:

  • It’s my first ever London Marathon,
  • I’m celebrating my 40th Birthday,
  • It’s also 40 years since my Dad ran the London Marathon in 1982.
  • It’s my dream to share this magical experience, taking my Dad & family to London with me and celebrate together at the finish, 40 years on.

My Dad inspired me to start running in 2017. We celebrated his 60th Birthday by running Great North Run together…

…Ultimately, it’s about inspiring my children, in the same way and showing them anything is possible.

Thank you #TeamStroke for this opportunity and making my dreams come true.
