I am running the marathon to raise more money and in a shorter time than my boyfriend for charity
About the project
My boyfriends a runner, I can run 10km but would cry at 15km. A marathon is 42km. I have 7 months to get ready. I can train for it and do it, I have no fear or doubt of that. But to run a marathon, you need a sponsor, so we both applied for a place with BHF, to stop he biggest killer in the world. We both got it.
The minimum pledge was £500. He said he could easily raise the money and put a pledge of £750. I'm stubborn and if he can do it I thought I can do it too. Quicker. Better. More.
I want to do it with help from people I don't know personally. I believe there are good people that help each other without expecting anything in return. If there are 75 of these good people that come across my page and donate £10 each, or 750 people with only a £1 donation, which wouldn't be a burden to them, I could easily reach my goal, not only to help beat heart disease, but also beat my boyfriend at his conquest of 'easily doing this fundraising and training better than me'.
I'm sure he'll be better at the running, and I'll have much more trouble, but I'll do it at the end. But I will have beaten him with your help.
Thank you so much for your time and help.
