2018 Marathon Heroes - Rebecca Foster

Rebecca's London Marathon Story

As part of our 2018 marathon heroes series, we are highlighting a selection of people running the London Marathon for good causes. We have featured each individual's story in our fortnightly #MarathonReady Live Stream, with further details below!

Rebecca Foster is raising money for a charity close to her heart, Sobell House Hospice. Here's what Rebecca has to say about her reasons to run:

"Shortly before Christmas 2016, my Nan Pauline was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She passed away less than a month later. During that time, Sobell House went over and above to make her last weeks comfortable and provide invaluable support to the family.

To say thank you, I completed the Blenheim 7K in May 2016 with my Dad, raising an incredible £555 for the charity in just a few weeks.

 We are now taking on the much bigger challenge of the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon, and are aiming to raise as much as possible for them again.

Of course when I say 'we' I use the term loosely as it will be a walk in the park for Dad, but this will be my first marathon I will complete having only taking up Running December 2016.  

The next few months will be packed with countless hours of training, but it will all be worth it when we cross the finish line in April, and hopefully provide Sobell House with a large contribution to help them to continue to do their fantastic work."

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
