Introduction I love running which I use to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK in memory of my mum (please read her story below to see why it is so important to me). I ran my first marathon in 2004. I wanted to do something special at the London marathon to get publicity for ARUK - a friend remarked that I should "act my age and stay at home with my knitting!" So I took my knitting with me to became the first person to knit whilst running a marathon and set the Guinness World Record for "The longest Scarf Knitted Whilst Running a Marathon"! I was also the first person to crochet whilst running a marathon. I have run 4 marathons whilst knitting & 2 whilst crocheting to set the GWR for "Longest crochet chain whilst running a marathon"). I achieved my 100th marathon in 2017 and also completed 52 marathons in 52 weeks in the process. I completed my first 100 mile event in 2018. I completed my 200th marathon in September 2021. My next fund-raising challenge is to complete 10 marathons in 10 days in August/September 2023. Please see the link below.
