I am in training now for my first marathon – the Rightmove MK Marathon Weekend in Milton Keynes – on 5th and 6th May 2019. On the 5th is a 5km (3 miles) run, and on the 6th is the marathon (42km / 26 miles) – a total of 47km / 29 miles in one weekend.
My main marathon goal is to reach the finish line. My secondary is to complete it in less than 4.5 hours. I also hope to use my “Sugar Drop” protocol as an experiment – running without sugar – subject to prior tests, precautions and medical clearance! (learn more).
I am going to run this marathon in memory of my late mother- and father-in law Fred & Joan Shanks. I am raising funds for Marie Curie.
