Jill takes on the London Marathon

My name is Jill Boorman and work at Vanguard Self Storage London East and I am taking on the mammoth challenge of completing my first London Marathon on Sunday 24th April.

After months of training runs, I will be among the expected 38,000 nervous and excited runners congregating on Blackheath for the start of this year’s London Marathon, I personally will be extremely nervous.

I have decided to use my place to raise funds for JDRF UK (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), a charity very close to my heart as I am a Type 1 Diabetic. JDRF UK need funds to continue their potentially life changing research into Type 1 (Insulin-Dependent) Diabetes.

As a Type 1 Diabetic training for the London Marathon, the long distance runs involved have proved to be a challenge all of their own at times!

If you would like to sponsor me and thank you very much if you do :-) here's the link; uk.virginmoneygiving.com/jill-boorman-VMLM2016-43178 Please also leave a good luck message if you do sponsor me!

The marathon route will pass directly in front of Vanguard East London’s site at 188 Westferry Road and I will try and give it a nod as I pass by but I suspect that as this is just after the 16 mile mark of the run, I may be otherwise too pre-occupied/exhausted!

Runners must complete the full 26 miles, 385 yards before they run over the finish line at The Mall in Central London and finally lay their hands on their well deserved finisher’s medal.

The First London Marathon

The London Marathon was created after Chris Brasher, a former Olympic Champion, returned home from completing the New York Marathon. He was so moved by the sight of over one million people unified by one major challenge and this made him feel that London had to have its own marathon.

After studying other big city marathons, Chris Brasher established the London Marathon’s charity status. His dream was realised on 29th March 1981 with the first London Marathon and it proved to be an instant success.

If you feel your own legs aren't up to actually running a marathon but you'd still like to be part of the day and show your support, join the crowds to shout encouragement instead. Crowds of spectators line the whole 26.2 mile route but great viewing points can be found at Greenwich, the Isle of Dogs, The Highway, Tower Bridge, Embankment, Westminster and of course, the emotional finish of the Marathon on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

PLEASE NOTE

OUR WESTFERRY ROAD DEPOT WILL BE CLOSED ON MARATHON DAY.

NORMAL HOURS WILL RESUME ON MONDAY 27 APRIL 2015.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THOSE INVOLVED!

SOME EASTER FACTS

THE NAME EASTER ORIGINATES FROM EASTRE. SHE WAS THE GREAT MOTHER GODDESS OF THE SAXON PEOPLE IN NORTHERN EUROPE.

THE EXCHANGE OF EGGS FOR EASTER DATES BACK TO A SPRINGTIME CUSTOM OLDER THAN EASTER ITSELF IN WHICH EGGS WERE GIVEN AS A SYMBOL OF REBIRTH IN MANY CULTURES.

THE UK'S FIRST EVER CHOCOLATE EGG WAS PRODUCED IN 1873 BY FRY’S OF BRISTOL. HOWEVER FORGET THE CREAMY MILK CHOCOLATE FILLED WITH SWEETS THAT WE KNOW NOW, EARLY EASTER EGGS WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE FROM A GRAINY TEXTURED BITTER DARK CHOCOLATE. THE EGGS WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTRAVAGANTLY DECORATED BY HAND WITH LARGE MARZIPAN FLOWERS AND CHOCOLATE PIPING TO CATER FOR THE VICTORIAN TASTES. THESE EGGS WOULD HAVE ONLY GIVEN BY THE RICH AS EXTRAVAGANT GIFTS.

THE TALLEST CHOCOLATE EASTER EGG EVER MADE WAS IN ITALY IN 2011. IT STOOD AT 10.39 METRES HIGH (34 FT 1.05 IN) AND WEIGHED IN AT 7,200 KG (15,873 LBS 4.48 OZ). THE EGG WAS HEAVIER THAN AN ELEPHANT AND TALLER THAN A GIRAFFE!

80 MILLION CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS ARE SOLD EACH YEAR. THIS ACCOUNTS FOR 10% OF BRITAIN’S ANNUAL SPENDING ON CHOCOLATE.

ENOUGH CADBURY'S CREME EGGS ARE MADE IN BIRMINGHAM EVERY YEAR TO MAKE A PILE TEN TIMES HIGHER THAN MOUNT EVEREST IF YOU PUT THEM ON TOP OF EACH OTHER.

IN MEDIEVAL TIMES, A FESTIVAL OF EGG THROWING WAS HELD IN CHURCHES. THE PRIEST WOULD THROW A HARDBOILED EGG TO ONE OF THE CHOIRBOYS AND IT WOULD THEN BE TOSSED FROM ONE CHOIRBOY TO ANOTHER. WHICHEVER BOY WAS HOLDING THE EGG WHEN THE CLOCK STRUCK 12 WOULD BE DEEMED THE WINNER.
