On April 22nd I'm going to run the London Marathon. This is my first marathon, and today I ran the furthest distance I ever ran, 21 miles! It's been a great and humbling experience to train with friends and colleagues in this process 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️ We are running in support of the #NSPCC , an amazing charity that does incredible work for vulnerable children in the #UK .
I'm working to raise at least £2,200 (~$3,000). If you’re able to support me in this process, we would be incredibly grateful.

Get set, SNOW! ❄️❄️❄️ which is great unless, y'know, you have to run for three hours in zero degrees 🤣. This morning was very cold but very beautiful... was aiming for 3h30 and about 30km but ankle gave up at around 20km which isn't ideal - need to up my strength work and get back to the physio I guess 😭. Five weeks to go until @londonmarathon - £2.1k raised so far and feeling quite determined!
I'm currently working with my son to prepare him for big school which includes: ✔Making sure he can dress/undress properly
✔Explaining about new friends
✔Practising writing, reading, phonics & maths
✔Doing activities around listening
✔Talking to him about #nspcc#pants and not having secrets
Ultimately, what he learns at home and continues to learn will set him up for the rest of his life. .
I genuinely LOVE being a parent!! Although it has its challenges, I wouldnt change it for the world!
Currently leaving these around work as a hint! Doing an ultramarathon in respect of my friend Leon who hasn't been able to see his kids for two years. It's put him in tons of debt trying to see them and I originally said I'd do this to fundraise for him personally. He's an awesome guy and instead he's asked for the money to go towards charities that help others in his situation. Anybody who sponsors me to do this will be helping the organisations CALM and NSPCC links also in my website address. Thanks to everyone who has sponsored already! #ultramarathon#training#campaignagainstlivingmiserably#nspcc
Our NSPCC Bootcamp took place last Sunday to support the fundraising being done by member @kellylarabluff_ who is also trekking to Machu Picchu to raise money for the @nspcc_official.
So much fun had and we were delighted to be able to do our bit! All proceeds are going directly to the NSPCC.
Long run on Friday so working on speed today 🏃🏻♂️🏃🏻♂️🏃🏻♂️ Not long till the big race! Thank you to all those who have donated already 👊🏼 #rikrunslondon#londonmarathon2018#nspcc#watchoutmo

The #NSPCC reports that there are an estimated 137,000 women and girls affected by #FemaleGenitalMutilation#FGM in England and Wales, but funding cuts have limited services. Founded in 2013, @thevavengers bring together people of different ages, nationalities and genders with one common goal: ending FGM. The community association puts on cultural events to raise money for initiatives such as The Dahlia Project, and has plenty more in the pipeline for 2018. Follow them on Instagram to see more of their good work. #endfgm as seen on @emeraldstreetemail
A: According to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children’s statistics, as much as 1 in every 14 children (1 in 15 according to National Coalition Against Domestic Violence) are victims of physical abuse. And among those, disabled children are three times more likely to be physically abused than non-disabled children. #talktosomeoneyouarenotalone#physicalabuse#physicalabuseawareness
Cannot stress how important this is, it's more common than many people realise 💙💛 Ignoring the issue, in hopes that it goes away, is unacceptable. If you believe someone you know is in danger you MUST inform someone. The longer it is left the less likely something can be done to prevent it #stopabuse#nspcc#breakthesilence 💙💛♥️💜
Nick and I are starting training for the Great North Run on 9th September. We’re fundraising for the NSPCC and would be very grateful for any donation you can manage. Clickable link in bio x Thank you ❤️#gnr#NSPCC#halfmarathontraining#halfmarathon
