I'm getting out from behind my computer and running the London Landmarks Half Marathon to raise money for Leukaemia Cancer Society. It is my first half marathon and I don't know if I can do it. Please come and join me, there are still some free places left!
I will be running 13.1 miles around London on 1st August 2021. The race (I've entered a race?! What was I thinking?) goes round all the major London Landmarks and this year is honouring all the Covid heroes as well as remembering all the quirky, strange things we got up to in lockdown.
I am not a natural athlete, I don't do organised sport or fitness activities and I'm the most reluctant gym bunny you'll every meet. But I really want to do this for Leukaemia Cancer Society. Blood cancer is not as well known as other cancers but it is the fifth most common and someone is diagnosed with it every 14 minutes. 2020 was a tough year for us and all blood cancer charities. I want to help raise some money for our essential services.
I could really do with some fellow runners. We have some free places to give away (deadline 16th June).
