The countdown to this year’s London Marathon on Sunday 22 April continues apace. I shall be watching the runners with particular interest as this year a total of 16 entrants will be taking part and raising funds for my two charities - Age UK Westminster and the Social Mobility Foundation.
I recently hosted a breakfast for some of the runners taking part in aid of my charities in the Lord Mayor’s Parlour where, over a healthy breakfast of fruit juice, yoghurt and a few croissants, we swapped notes on training regimes, avoiding injuries and keeping motivated. I was particularly impressed to meet a number of runners who will be taking part in their first ever marathon. No mean feat! Good luck to ‘Team Westminster’ and everyone taking part in the 2018 London Marathon.
