Just signed up to run for the James Blake Foundation in the New York Marathon
August 01, 2016
BENEFITING: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
There are many reasons to attempt to run a marathon - maybe a bucket list goal, maybe you like to spend a lot of time by yourself training for months to hopefully reach the finish line.
Once finshing a marathon there is the instant either "ok - done that - definitely not doing it again" or "that was unbelievable, the crowds, the determination of the runners and all those runners running for charity".
The New York Marathon will be my 4th time running for a charity. My first three charity runs have been in aid of Children with Cancer, UK - twice at the London Marathon and hopefully again in Berlin just six weeks before the NYC Marathon.
I LIKE the marathon. I LIKE the training. I LIKE pushing my body and mind to its limits and I LOVE to be given the opportunity to raise money for those who might be struggling and suffering with a disease that sometimes is relentless. But I firmly believe that eventually we can beat cancer and until that point we have to keep trying to help those who need it and raise as much money as we can for the research to beat it.
For those who are running and to those who dash around the course to see us - Thank you xoxo
