Why I Run
My love for running began when I was about 5 and my dad and I would run around the yard together; he'd always joke that I must have been part gazelle because he never knew how I kept up with him. I've always been a runner, but I didn't learn to love racing until my husband and I went to London on our honeymoon to visit my sister, Julia, who'd just given birth to my beautiful niece. Julia had signed up for a 10k before she became pregnant and asked me to run the race for her, luckily the British Heart Foundation didn't mind the switch, and I ran my first 10k. I was hooked! I ran about 25 races that first year, including my first half marathon 5 months later (and my 2nd half 3 weeks later), that was 2014. Since then, I've run 18 half marathons and 3 marathons.
Why I support Blessons
I've been blessed my entire life because my parents stressed the importance of a good education. It is an honor to be physically able to run and to be given the opportunity.
You can always spot me from the crowd as I'm always racing in my trusty unicorn horn.
