Behind the Scenes: Sam Perry ¦¦ Chats to M1: London Marathon

I have decided to to run the marathon because… it is something I’ve always wanted to do and I know it will be a challenge but I’ve been to watch friends and family run in the past so I know the atmosphere’s amazing, I can’t wait

I will be doing the race… alone

I have been training since… only this February because I tore some ligaments in my knee skiing at Xmas and had to have physio for 5 weeks

My training has been… apart from the Muay Thay in Thailand, I tried to run a bit in Thailand. When  I am at home I try to run off road as much as possible with my dog- Taz

My longest run to date is… 16 miles

I am aiming to have a final time of… under 3 hours 30 minutes, but we’ll have to see on the day!

I have started eating… much more pasta especially as it gets closer to the event  but I am usually healthy anyway. I will be staying away from alcohol this week as well to detox my body fully

I am raising money for… Sightsavers, a charity who work to combat blindness by performing sight restoring operations (for as little as £5) in developing countries

So far I have raised… about £750, but I’m hoping to get over £1000. My justgiving page can be found at https://www.justgiving.com/Sam-Perry1 and any donations would be very much appreciated :)
