Alli's Marathon for MND

In October Alli Thompson is running the Kielder Marathon in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association. She's started her training programme and you can follow her progress on here.

This is the link to her Justgiving page:

Alli's latest update on her training progress.

"All recovered from the cold and a brief holiday in France.
I’m back to exercising 5 days a week and increasing my mileage prior to my focused training programme starting next week. I’m going to be giving Yoga a try…I’m the least flexible person I know so it should be interesting and hopefully I’ll be able to do it!
It will do me good especially combined with my HIIT sessions and the running - in my new running shoes - woo hoo!!.
A mixed training approach makes life much more fun."

Doddington & Wychling Villages Alli's Marathon for MND

"I am raising money for our local MNDA in Kent as a friend was diagnosed with this cruel condition last year. She and her husband have had support from East and Mid Kent MNDA. I last ran a Marathon (London) over 20 years ago, more as a rite of passage than a real desire. This time it is different. I have a clear motivation to raise money for MNDA and I already have my training plan organised for the next 5 months. Above all I am excited!!!! My husband has shaken his head in disbelief at me (yet again), but he is incredibly supportive and knows if I set my mind to something it will happen."
