On Thursday 6 December, Fleur from SV attended the first of three London Marathon information evenings at Haven House.
The meeting gave the runners, who will all be fundraising for Haven House, an opportunity to get to know each other before they embark on their marathon journey.
They were given some excellent tips from Run With Ben, a local running coach, and Dr Sarah Schenker, a dietician and sports nutritionist who is also a London Marathon 2019 runner.
Along with training plans, preparations and running nutrition, Fleur provided information about the injuries the runners may face over the next few months and how they can help themselves with regular stretching, foam rolling and maintenance massage sessions.
Discussions were followed by a tour of the hospice, which showed some of the amazing work that goes on at Haven House, and where the money raised - over £2,000 per runner - will be going.
We look forward to the next meeting and helping the runners throughout the next 20 weeks until the big day.
