Can you tell us your name?
How many marathons have you run?
London Marathon 2018 was my first ever marathon completed in my first year of running, this year I will be doing Paris Marathon on 14 April and London Marathon on 28 April.
Is this your first London Marathon?
No, I was lucky to run it last year and was the race that has got me hooked on running marathons.
What charity are you running for and why?
I am running for Mind, the mental health charity in memory of a very dear friend that lost her battle to mental health in January 2018, I wanted to do something amazing in her honour. Running also helped me a lot in dealing with my grief when she passed away and it seems fitting that I do this to help others.
How do you plan to recover after the marathon?
My go to plan on all my long runs, legs up for a short period directly after the run, I then put on a pair of OOFOS (they are a saving grace), keep moving and enjoy a delicious meal to aid in my recovery post the marathon. Last year I ended up wearing my OOFOS for about 3 days after the marathon so I might just try that again.
