Interview with Lynne
Lynne Hall, our Management Accountant here at Credo, is taking on the challenge of a lifetime to run the London Marathon on April 28th all in aid of The Dementia Revolution. So we managed to get a rare interview with Mrs Motivator herself to ask her a few questions..
- What was your reason to enter? – I entered the ballot on a whim not expecting to get a place and was delighted and terrified in equal measure.
- Why have you chosen this charity? Has it got special meaning to you? If so why? The Dementia Revolution is the chosen charity for the London 2019 Marathon, it’s a charity very close to my heart as my dad has very recently been diagnosed with Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia.
- How long have you been running? Is it something you are doing for the first time or a sport you are passionate about? I have run for years, but not very fast or far. The furthest I had run before this training was 10k.
- Have you followed a particular plan to get fit for the marathon? Tell me about your plan – I am following the Virgin London Marathon beginners training plan, a 17 week plan that has taken me from gentle 20 minutes easy runs to the 20 miles I hope to do before the big day!
- Are you excited or scared? – I am looking forward to the day, I’ve been told to think of it as the reward for all the hard work training before hand.
- Who is coming to support you? All my family and a few friends.
- What’s the first thing you will do when you’ve finished? Probably cry
- Will you do anymore? It’s hard to say at the moment I would say no, the training is a big commitment both in time and energy, but as I cross the line with Sir Mo – who knows!!
- If people want to sponsor you how can they do this? Below is a link to my fundraising page. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-portal/fundraiserPage?pageId=1018118
