Emily & Jill’s Liverpool Rock & Roll Marathon blog

On 28 May, Leuchie care assistant Emily and her sister Jill will be running the Rock 'n' Roll Liverpool Marathon for Leuchie. With just three weeks to go, Emily (below left) gives us an update on their training and looks ahead to the big day!

Jill and I have just finished a 20 mile training run today so it's a good time to give you an update. This is our last longer training run before the marathon, which is terrifying! We are starting to get really excited but also really nervous as it's less than three weeks away now. 

We have both been finding keeping up with training quite hard over the last few weeks because I have been getting ready for my final exams of my master year at university and Jill has been trying to juggle working, university and training.  But we've used our longer runs as an excuse to explore new places and take lots of pictures! 

The support we have been receiving from everyone and knowing how much everyone at Leuchie appreciates our fundraising has been a massive motivation for both of us and I don't think we could have done it without all the support.

If you'd like to support Emily and Jill on 28 May, your donation will help us to provide essential respite breaks at Leuchie House. Click here to support them now!
