My Activity Tracking


My target 100 mi

I’m fundraising for the charity Sands!

This year I'm taking part in My Marathon My Way to raise vital funds for Sands during this incredibly difficult time.

In these uncertain times, the Sands helpline and online community are vital in keeping bereaved families connected by offering a safe, confidential and compassionate space to talk.

The NHS is stretched and Sands are there to support with the various emotional needs bereaved parents and families have day to day, which can be heightened in such uncertain times.

Sands is not immune from the effects of this pandemic so I’m taking on My Marathon My Way to save lives with every mile.

My Updates

Gotta get back on it

Monday 22nd Mar
Had a rough couple of months with my 11 year old who needs constant supervision. Hopefully we have turned a corner and this will enable me to finish my target of 100 miles.

Back to routine

Monday 25th Jan
So during lockdown again the lack of routine has its effect on my mental health. Today I am starting again and will hopefully be able to add to my mileage every day. 
Hopefully the icy snow will have vanished and it will be easier than it was today! 
My new method. Tracking all trips I would normally do by car but now walking instead.

Lunchtime walk

Wednesday 2nd Dec
So decided I would bump my miles up with a mini lunchtime walk each day at work. 2km done so well on my way. Maybe I might loose a little weight while I'm doing this 🤞

So I've started!

Monday 30th Nov
Well started with a 2 mile walk a day early with dog and pushchair in tow!!!! Hopefully will be able to build this up over the next week so I can get those miles in. Feeling super happy and confident that I can do this!!!


Saturday 28th Nov
So thats it. I finally signed up. Plan to start on the 1st of December. Wish me luck everyone. Think I'm going to need it with my chaotic household!!!
