Virgin marathon runner Lisa is counting down to her first big event
Having secured her place in the Virgin Money London Marathon several months ago, Lisa Goodman has been very busy getting ready for Sunday’s 26.2 mile run around some of London’s most iconic landmarks.
Months of fundraising and physical training have taken over Lisa’s life as she prepares for the big event on Sunday 22 April 2018.
A member of Rollits Accounts team, Lisa only took up running in 2014 and has already competed in the Hull 10K and the Great North Run, but this is her first attempt at the full marathon distance.
Lisa said “ I am grateful to all the support from colleagues, family and friends who have helped me with fundraising over the last few months. charity race night, tombolas, bake sales, our office tuck shop and match funding from Rollits have enabled me to take my place on the starting line on Sunday.
“As the VMLM approaches I am feeling very nervous and anxious, everything in my mind is overthought with what if’s - injury, heat, collapsing or not finishing - which is causing many sleepless nights. Deep down I know this will be an emotional rollercoaster ride but an amazing MIND over matter experience, which I am looking forward to.”
Lisa will be running in aid of the national charity Mind.
