My mum is an inspirational person who ran the 2011 London Marathon and raised £4400 for Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire air ambulance.For the first time in my life in New year 2008 I started jogging around my local area to try and get fit. I used to hate running but in time I realised I was very good at it. In 2009 I thought I would apply for the london marathon but I didn't get accepted. I kept applying and in 2011 I got in with the Lincs & Notts air ambulance. I'd never ran that far before (26 miles) and had never raised money but my family and friends spurred me on. Over the next few months money came tumbling in and I eventually raised £4400. I never believed I could achieve so much but I did it and at 48 years of age I want to prove to other people that if you believe in yourself you can go really far and potentially change other peoples lives for the better.
