Welcome to my Site, My name is McKenzie Madison AKA “Macca”. 25 years old from Manchester UK.  This has been set up to allow me to share my Journey, as I keep going into running shops/being asked by friends if I Blog.  So apologies as it’s a new world to   myself and out of my comfort zone. Hopefully learning from the best of you!

I always said running a marathon was never for me. However, losing my baby nephew Oliver Nuttall put my life into perspective. He was born with half a heart and was transferred to Birmingham Children’s hospital. After a short 2 months, he lost his fight. In this short timolivere he touched so many. I decided to grab life by the horns and live life to the fullest. I decided to stop wishing and decided to start doing.

I booked onto my first marathon (and what I thought would be my last). Booking my first marathon being true to me wasn’t going to be easy. After much deliberation, I booked The Great wall of China Marathon.  Shortly following on, on runners high. I booked The Petra Desert Marathon. Both I went into with much apprehension, fear and doubt.

I put in the Hours the Training and overcome every one of my fears.  This years I have set out to test myself further. My confirmed plans for 2017 are as follows.

February the 12th : Hong Kong Chartered Marathon.

March the 17th     : Jerusalem Marathon.

April the 2nd          : Manchester Marathon.

May the 14th         : Brecon Beacons Ultra.

June the 10th       :Inca Trail Marathon, Machu Picchu.

September the 24th : Loch Ness Marathon. 

last but not least in November, I will complete a 4 week trek to base camp , then run the World’s highest Marathon on Everest.

I hope you will join me on my journey, keeping my moral up, offering advice, or recommendations on where next.  Or set out on a challenge together? I just want to do the little man Proud.

There will be more to add to this over the next few days but I thought I would make a start as February is calling !!
