Tara Sets Her Sights On London Marathon For Charity

Tara Sherwood, based in Huddersfield lettings department is no stranger to pushing herself, or fundraising for charity.

Last year she did a skydive, as well as a 10k for charity. 

A keen runner, she has set herself a tough challenge this Spring having been accepted to take part in the London Marathon, on behalf of the British Legion. We fully support her in her quest and admire the amount of time she is pounding the hilly pavements in Yorkshire, training.

So why does Tara like to run, and whats her motivation for running 26 miles?!

What got you into running?

I joined a beginners course a few years ago and enjoyed it so much I became a fully-fledged member. Great club, met great people who have become great friends.

Who do you run with/for?

Stainland Lions

What do you like most about running?

Plotting World domination while running with friends. Every run is a challenge. Dusts of the cob webs after a busy day at work.

Plus we have a great social life at the club.

Why are you supporting the British Legion?

Think its an ace charity. We all know The Legion because we support Armistice day annually on 11th November which is organised by them and recognises a small part of the amazing work they do.

They safe guard the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the armed forces.

And of course, remembering the fallen and honouring those who lives on.

What are you most excited about?

Excited about the whole day out in London. Running amongst friends, the personal challenge, the atmosphere, the crowds, seeing the Queen and the event as whole I am told is a once in a life time experience.

Tick it off the bucket list. But most excited about crossing that finish line whether I run, walk or crawl over the line and hopefully I'll be hand in hand with a friend.

What are you not looking forward to?

Needing to powder my nose enroute round the course!

Trying not to find any negatives! Only positives aloud. Its all about attitude!
