With everything that has happened over the last few months I have had a lot of soul searching to do, and a very big decision to make.

After giving it a lot of thought, consulting the relevant medical professionals and speaking to my lovely fundraising co-ordinator at Genetic Disorders UK, I have decided that I am going to go ahead with my challenge of completing the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon!

It means the world to me to be able to support such an amazing charity and the fact that I will be running on behalf of Boo (who has a rare genetic disorder) makes this even more important to me.




Now that the decision has been made I am feeling even more determined than before.

But it isn't going to be easy. 

In fact, it will be far from it, which is why I need your support now more than ever before.  
My training will hopefully recommence this month (as long as I get the all clear from my physio team on Friday) and I am slightly terrified about going out for the first time.
  
I don't expect miracles. 

I know I'm not going to be able to run properly for a while, but I need to bring my fitness levels back up after sitting around for several months unable to do anything.

I am confident that if I work hard enough then I will be able to complete the Marathon and hopefully raise lots of money for Genetic Disorders UK in the process. 

My challenge was hard enough to begin with, but after breaking my ankle, having surgery, spending 6 weeks in a cast, and then suffering from a pulmonary embolism, it has just got a whole lot harder.
