We're training hard in order to run the Manchester Marathon. Our mum Jo, works as an activities instructor in the hospice and we know how important fundraising is to her and to the hospice. We hope to make our mum proud and raise money for this very worthwhile cause. The hospice helps many patients and families during difficult times so any donations are much appreciated.
We both run regularly to keep fit, but we started training properly in December following a specific training programme. We've overcome a few injuries and niggles along the way but we're back on track now with a few weeks to go! Sara has 2 young boys so she juggles the challenges of work, being a mum and finding the time and energy to fit in the long training runs. Anna travels back to Yorkshire from Manchester every week to do the long training run with Sara. But the only reason we can do this marathon is because we have such great support from mum who babysits the boys to support us. So we want to run this marathon, make mum proud and raise money for a cause very close to her heart.
