London 4 Compassion

London Marathon Expo


Registered and ready to go!

22 April 2017


Yesterday, full of nerves and excitement, we travelled across town to London Excel to register for Sunday’s marathon. We collected our race number, timing chip and took a look around the London Marathon Expo. We managed to resist spending a small fortune on all sorts of running kit, but did pick up some energy bars, gel belts and some great advice from experienced marathon runners.

The last week has been hard. Trying to relax, rest our legs and allow injuries to heal, and after months of pushing ourselves to train, it's been quite odd forcing ourselves not to train.

The nerves are real now with just one sleep to go, but we’ve been blown away by all the support and encouragement. Thanks again to everyone that’s sponsored us, it’s given us such a boast and is going to make such a difference to the children in Uganda!
