Michelle’s Mighty Marathon for Macmillan Jersey
The reason I am running the Jersey Marathon can be very simply put : because no one believed I could, not even me!
Since I began running in 2014, I never thought I’d take on 26.2 miles. Well, not in one go! I’ve completed various 5k, 10k and half marathon distances, both locally and in the UK, but a marathon seemed well out of my league.
I created a UK Facebook running group – The Tea Dragons – last year and have been inspired by their achievements so much that I applied for both the ballot and a charity place for the VLM 2017, but was unsuccessful.
There was nowhere else that made me desperate to run, so I thought I’d try ‘at home’ as my first (and possibly last) marathon!
I was a volunteer for Macmillan Jersey for 2 years before becoming a permanent member of staff. I’m a little biased, but the work we do and the support we offer is incredible and I know how vital every penny is, so it was an obvious choice to raise money for this charity!
