So having got quite into my running over the last year, in January 2016 I thought it might be a good aim to try and run my first marathon before I turn 30 in August. So now I am - in Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leona marathon is run by Street Child, an education charity that supports children in Sierra Leone and Liberia to get back into safe family homes and access to education. Street Child is currently providing care for over 12,000 Ebola orphans in West Africa.
Running the Sierra Leone marathon will be the biggest adventure, and biggest challenge, that I have ever done in my life. I'm really excited, but pretty scared as well!
