As some of you may know, I had planned on running the London Marathon this year as part of my journey to complete the Abbot World Major marathons. But unfortunately, due to a family health emergency, I had to defer my entry until April 23rd, 2023. So while it was disappointing not to be able to run this year with my good friends Lisa and Robert, who are also on Team Ultra with me, I know that taking care of my family is the most important thing.
For those of you who may not be familiar, the Abbot World Majors are a series of six of the most iconic marathons in the world. London, Berlin, Tokyo, Boston, Chicago, and New York City make up the series, and completing all six is a huge accomplishment for any runner. I am proud to say that I have completed three of the races so far, and London will be my fourth. I am registered for Berlin in September and have my sights set on Tokyo as my final race.
As for my fundraising efforts for the Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC), I am currently at 75% of my goal, and I am so grateful for all the support I have received so far. However, I still have a way to go and am asking for your help to reach the rest. The target of £2,500 for each runner will help RSBC support one child for a whole year! I genuinely believe in the work that RSBC does, and I am honored to be able to support them in this way.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far, and I hope you will continue to do so as I work toward my goal. If you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, please visit my fundraising page to do so.
