I set to run a marathon as my new year's resolution. Three years ago! And that is a lesson that if you really want something, eventually (after three years) you will have an opportunity!

Seriously. Running marathons was never a priority for me. But I do enjoy running and I am constantly training for a lower pace and longer distances.

I stopped using Strava this fall, so you will have to trust me on this.

I found London Landmarks Half Marathon through Michael and I was immediately keen to join and put my self in a real race.

The event is being held by the baby charity Tommy's. Tommy's is funding research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. Their about page says it better than anyone:

We want every parent to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes and to take home happy, healthy babies.


LLHM will take place on 24th of March 2019. Roads will be closed and more than 13,000 runners will be part of it.

It will be a great path through central London that will start from Pall Mall to St Paul’s Cathedral to the Tower of London to the London Eye and will eventually end by Downing Street.


In order to join this marathon I (pinky)-promised Tommy's that I will raise an amount of money. Those will be used by them to further their cause, fund more research and eventually reach their goals. You have goals too, you know how it is.

I have setup this page to help me take money from people like you that want to see me running. Click the link below to visit it.

Sponsor me now!


I hear you! Why should you give me your money? Well if you are still not sold, hear me out. They who will support me, will get:

  • A dedicated tweet from my personal Twitter account to get you more followers! (Note to editors: they will probably get none.)
  • A warm hug for my gals out there and a hardcore bro-shake for my dudes.
  • I will get to be your personal motivator for a healthier life. I will be calling you at 6am to go running and stuff.

Do not tell me. Still not sold?

Thank you very much for your support! Peace, Kostas.
