London Marathon 2024: Please support Gemma at the The Willow in March
Charity / Tue 6th Feb 2024 at 03:54pm
YH is following the progress of a number of Harlow residents from now until the big day on Sunday April 21st.
Gemma Smith is set to run the London Marathon for the second time and she can’t wait.
Gemma is running for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
This month, we asked Gemma for an update.
“It’s going better now. Getting into the swing of it. Doing the odd short speed runs beginning of the weeks as I’m working it around my job.
Thursday or Fridays are my long run days at the moment as I don’t work those.
Did a good 8 miles last week in 80 minutes and got to run a 10 miler this week.
Increasing by two miles each week to ease the legs in!
The donations and support I am getting from friends and family is keeping me motivated!
I cannot thank everyone enough for all your generosity!
I have now broken £700 mark and with my fundraiser on 2nd March.. im hoping to get as close to my final target as possible!
