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 time 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 !!
