Marathon Time!

5 years ago I first applied for a ballot place in the London Marathon. I was in a totally different place in life then, this was a time of life pre-kids and when I regularly entered triathlons for fun (yes, seriously) hmmm....

I've entered every year since, unsuccessfully, but this is my year! About a month ago instead of the 'sorry you weren't successful' magazine that I am used to receiving through my letterbox every year, I received my 'Marathon News', and it's marked the start of my journey to the start line of the London Marathon 2013. It's with slight apprehension that I'm commencing this personal challenge but so far so good with dragging myself off the sofa for a run 3 times a week (even if it is only week 2 of training). Juggling home life, a 3 year old and a baby, with training, not to mention breast feeding, will be interesting!

I'll be updating my progress in training regularly, keeping a diary of the highs and lows along the way.
