The London Marathon
Yesterday I sent in my application form for the London Marathon. The London Marathon is a 26.2 mile running race around London which will take place next April and since I only have 8 months to train for it I’m going to be focusing a large portion of my energy and thoughts in that area.
I have never undertaken such a big personal challenge in my life and that is why this is so important to me. I’ve set myself this challenge because I want to effect a huge amount of change in my life because my past habits and tendencies led to me being incredibly lazy and in a poor physical condition. I realised last year that if I didn’t change my ways that my body was about to pay the price, I could literally feel diabetes, among other things, creeping up on me!
Last month I managed a 3.5 mile fun run for charity and that was a huge milestone for me in terms of improving my overall health and getting my body into shape.
Now that I’ve sent off this application, I ask that you help enhance my intention and give my chances a little bit of an extra boost. The other reason for posting this up is to make a public commitment. I know that the more people that I tell about this…the more people will hold me to it and push me forward in this endeavour.
Wish me success!
