London Marathon Training 2019 – Making Diabetes Run With Me

As you may know I am signed up to take on the London Marathon on 28th April 2019.I will be running for #teamRNIB again this year, any support you can offer me would be amazing. Help Me Smash My Target


When I ran this last year I had so much positive feedback from others living with diabetes. There was also lots of questions around how I trained for the marathon, what techniques I used to go from not running at all to running a marathon in less than a year. Zero To Marathon In 359 Days


This year I am going to make a series of videos, showing how T1D runs with me. Sharing this journey will hopefully help somebody, even if it helps one person it is worthwhile for me to do this.
