Welcome to my first blog charting the trials and tribulations of training for the Glencoe marathon on Sunday 5th October (billed as one of the most challenging events in the UK). I know it's quite literally an uphill challenge, but it's for a worthwhile cause.
I'm raising money for two special little boys, Ryan Sheridan (12) and Oscar Cairns (4). Ryan and Oscar's parents have given me an insight about the boys and this is the reason I'm running this race. I'm currently off the grid at the moment (on holiday in Mull) so access is limited and I can't upload the links so I'll do this ASAP.
There's just under 3 months to go until the race, which is virtually all off-road and takes in the Devil's Staircase and the Mamores before finishing in Fort William. Keep following to see how my training is coming along. I'll be sure to call on my colleagues at Balance to help minimise strains and injuries along the way. Speak soon.
