Being fed up with repeated rejection from the London Marathon ballot and being against the idea of charities having to pay so much for bonded places I decided to do something a little bit more adventurous instead and that would benefit my chosen good causes directly. I’m also asthmatic and at one time I could barely run to the end of the street without gasping for air but new advances in asthma medicine have changed my life so this is additionally a bid to show that with proper medication there’s no limit to what you can do!
So, as the name suggests, my goal is to run in a marathon every month throughout 2010, either in organised races or (properly measured) solo runs if I can’t get a suitable race entry for that month.
I’ll be updating the site as the weeks progress with details of the events I will be taking part in and my progress with training.
Hopefully I’ll be able to include a couple of the more well known events but a quick search has affirmed that pretty much throughout the whole year, if you want to do a marathon there’s always one going on somewhere!

Other than that, thanks for visiting and feel free to comment on any of my posts – especially if you have any help or advice!
