The final countdown is on. The last few days at the end of a year of training for the Yorkshire Marathon. I’ve managed the Leeds Half Marathon and a couple of weeks ago in glorious sunshine I shaved a half hour off my time at the Vale of York Half.
My calves hurt, my hamstrings hurt and I feel slightly queasy every time I think about standing on the start line – and when I think about the other 26 miles for that matter. My training hasn’t always gone according to my best laid plans, but the support and sponsorship from friends, family and my church is a massive incentive to keep going. If you would like to add your support – do visit the charity choice fundraising page
and please do come out and wave and cheer on the day. I’ll be the one in the bright yellow top! Becki Dean
