My name is Rachel Phillips I’m 47 years old.
I first raised money for this fantastic charity back in October 2018 when I hiked to Everest Base Camp.
As I returned from there I found out I got a place in the London Marathon!!
Unfortunately I was pretty poorly in the February and I had to take the tough decision to transfer to 2020…… Coronavirus then hit and it was transferred again to 2021 so here I am 3rd time lucky and this year very determined to complete it!!!
The top I’m wearing is memory miles. People have donated to have names of loved ones who have passed or people they admire and I will be running each mile for them. The 26th mile I am running for my mum who passed in 2015
I am currently recovering from hamstring tendonopathy but am slowly starting to return to running with help from a physio.
I also have plans for an ultra in Kenya in 2023
The work that Team Fortitude and Rock 2 Recovery do is truly fantastic and I feel very proud to raise money to help them continue their great work.
