Mentally and Physically Challenging
Next year, will bring me a massive challenge both mentally and Physically. I am at this time, preparing for the London Marathon 2016. This is going to be my second London Marathon, and I am running in aid of a blindness charity called Metro Blind Sports.
The charity helps Blind and Partially sighted people to enjoy sports and live a Healthier lifestyle and opens sporting opportunities which may not be available to them.I have not only been set the task of running 26 miles but also to promote the charity and hopefully reach out to Blind and Partially sighted people across London.
It All Begins in Greenwich Park, Bring It on!
The Race starts in Greenwich Park and finishes in St. James’s Park, with the iconic finish along the Mall leading up to Buckingham Palace. Being new to London, I really enjoy passing through the many Boroughs where I serve the public through my piano tuning and maintenance work. Did you know we have an office in Greenwich (Royal Borough of Greenwich)?.
Planning a Vlog
I am planning to write Blog entries throughout my training, and also hoping to add some film clips of my training runs along the way. These would be available to watch directly from my website or through my Youtube Channel, and I will let you know on Twitter and Facebook when the next clip is live.
My Long Runs
I run from my home, over the Hammersmith bridge towards Barnes, dropping down onto the riverbank, heading towards Kew, and on towards Richmond Park. Besides, I will also be doing some track work at the Battersea Park running track, to build up my speed skills and general physical fitness.
As a blind runner, taking on such a challenge is a real mountain to climb, and I hope my runs over the next few months will interest you and offer an insight into running a marathon with severe sight loss. If you have any advice or running tips for me, please share them in the comments section below, or by sending me an email. Wish me luck!
