Introducing Flexitol Who Are Sponsoring My Marathon Journey

Shine Walk

Some of you might remember that last September I did the Shine Walk which was a marathon walk through London during the night to raise money for Cancer Research. It was a tough old walk with a pretty bad ankle injury that came from it but I made it and I’m signed up to do it again this year.

This year I am going into the marathon with a fresh mindset and I’ve made one big change, I’m doing it alone. Now it would be great to have someone there doing it with me but I think with anything like this it can be better to do it solo as you can do it at your pace rather than going at a suitable pace for you both. I am going to create an epic 6-8 hour playlist to ensure I have enough music to get me through and my only goal is to beat last years time which was about 8 hours.

The absolutely wonderful team at Flexitol are sponsoring me on my journey both financially to raise money for Cancer Research but also with my training in providing me with a whole host of foot care products to stop my feet from hurting. Keep an eye out for more details on those later this month.

If you’re feeling generous and would like to sponsor me you can here.

    Aww, this is amazing! Well done on last year and doing it again this year. I think I’d prefer to do it solo too if I’m honest. I can’t wait to hear about it, goodluck!! xx

    Good luck with the marathon, I couldn’t imagine doing it alone but if I did I would also create a playlist as long as yours to make sure I didn’t run out of music! xx

    Good luck. I’m really glad to see there are other ways of raising money for Cancer Research than Race For Life. I personally hate that event. I hate how they have made it a feminist thing and made cancer all pink and fluffy when it is the complete opposite

    That is a fantastic choice of a race. I had no idea there was such a race. I am also planning a run with help from flexitol. I look forward to following your progress.
