I’m Running the 2018 Virgin London Marathon With JDRF UK

I am incredibly excited to share with you that on 22nd April 2018 I’ll be running the Virgin London Marathon with JDRF UK!

Participating in the marathon is something I’ve had on my bucket list to do for as long as I can remember and do to be able to do it alongside a charity that does some incredible work for Type 1 Diabetes is something I’ll be very honoured and proud to do!

The aim? To be able to inspire those of you living with Type 1 Diabetes that it is completely achievable to do anything you want whilst living with this condition.

I’ve done half marathons, Tough Mudders, the Welsh Three Peaks challenge and participated in plenty of sporting events with Type 1 Diabetes but this will be on a whole other level! And I really cannot wait.


I’ll be documenting as much as I can – on here, my Facebook page and on my Instagram to show my training, nutrition and how I’m mentally preparing myself to run 26.2miles through one of the greatest cities in the world.

I’ll also be raising (at least!!) £2000 for JDRF UK and will be posting my JustGiving page later on this week!!

Here starts the journey!! I cannot express to you how excited I am to do this.

This should be fun….
