London Marathon 2013

I’m going to run the London marathon in April for the Family Holiday Association.  They are an amazing charity who support disadvantage families to take short breaks, usually to the British seaside.


I’ve been teaching and talking about social tourism a lot over the last five years, and the FHA are a great example of how tourism can be used to make a really positive contribution to peoples’ lives.  Holidays help families in all sorts of ways, giving benefits to health, education and stress-related problems.  The work of the FHA supports families in need to improve their quality of life.

It would be fantastic if some of the readers of my blog could sponsor me – I hope that if you are involved in tourism or in addressing social exclusion, that you’ll be happy to support such a fantastic charity.  If you’re a company who’d like me to promote your work through my blog and can offer some sponsorship in return, then just drop me a line!

  1. Running a marathon may seem daunting, but with the right training, 26.2 miles is perfectly doable. Even people who have never run a distance longer than 3 or 4 miles can successfully train for and run their first marathon. Even seasoned marathon runners benefit from structured training programs, especially if they have a goal to finish it in a certain amount of time.Do you want to run a marathon? Well, all it takes to do so is to select a good training program and to make the commitment to stick with the plan. The training is designed to help condition your body to withstand.”
