How many marathons have you run? 16


I started running in 2011 after telling strangers that there was no way I could a marathon. I was ashamed of myself for being so negative and decided that day I was going to run a marathon. I ran the Dublin marathon in October 2011. I've ran 16 marathons (London, New York, Loch Ness, Tromso, Liverpool, Nottingham, Brighton and Boston) and raised over £80,000 for UK and Irish charities. I'm not the fastest runner; quite the opposite. I'm always at the back but I love knowing that I can run it, will run it and will get that medal at the end.
