You’re out of breath, you’ve lost all sensation in your legs, your chest is on fire - and then the little voice in your head starts… ‘Will I ever reach the end?’, ‘ Should I just give up now?!'

That’s how I feel when I’m jogging round my local park – so it with immense admiration that I’ll be watching the good folks running the London Marathon this weekend!

When I see the determination of the other participants, there is no better motivation to keep me moving – one day, I hope, it’ll be me. People from all corners of the world, some surpassing their disability to reach the finish line, all coming together in a fun and relaxed atmosphere for some incredible causes.

Did you know that a total of 58 world records will be attempted at this year’s London Marathon? And this include feats such as fastest marathon carrying a household appliance to the fastest marathon dressed as a 3D dinosaur! Do you have your costume ready to be a charity fundraiser for this event? I already know I’d dress as Marilyn Monroe – blond wig bobbing all the way to victory J

According to a reliable source, George Clooney is poised to run the London Marathon 2016. I’ve always secretly wished for this heart-throb to run next to me – and one day, if the wind is strong enough while we are on the London Bridge, he might get a glimpse of my very own flying skirt moment!
