    Thumbs up We need you! London Marathon 2013

    Do you like running or would like to get into running? Ever fancied running a marathon?

    (Fostress running the Brighton Marathon)


    Well now’s your chance! We have places in the Virgin London Marathon 2013 and are really pleased to be able to offer a small team the chance to run, before the ballot opens. You are all a huge part of the work we do here at YouthNet and we would love you to represent the charity by running for us.

    We know that running a marathon is well, a marathon task! But don’t worry, the team at YouthNet will be here to help you every step of the way. We’ll help you to fundraise and give you lots of training tips and support throughout the year.

    We also know it’s not a quick or easy decision to run a marathon, so you don’t need to give us a definite answer just yet. If you think you might be interested and want to find out more please get in touch either here or PM LauraO

    I would definitely consider it. The half marathon was the hardest thing I ever did, and my proudest achievement.

    Promise me you'll always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    I can just send you some more info at this stage and you can have a think about it if you'd like? I know it's not a quick decision to make

    I'd be interested in considering it. I need a target to kick my arse into gear with training!
    Can you hold me like you held someone you shouldn't have let go?
    Can you keep me deep inside like the regrets that burned a hole?
    Can you love me like you loved someone you loved so long ago?
