12 months ago I ran my very first marathon in Paris. Today I ran marathon number 6 in Manchester with a more ambitious goal of running under 3hours 30 minutes. Coming just two weeks before the London Marathon, I have been in two minds about how to approach the Manchester Marathon all through training. In the end, I thought it was best to give 100% and just run it like any other race. Holding back can often result in injuries.
You may or may not already know that I am going to be running the Virgin London Marathon in 2018 and running for the British Heart Foundation. I thought I would write a quick blog on my reasons why I am running for the BHF and the target I have now set myself.

The final two weeks of marathon training before running the New York Marathon on the 5th November. A training plan which pretty much started on the 27th December 2016, but the majority of the training began after the Paris Marathon in April.
