A Grantham woman only took up running last year so that she could take part in the London Marathon.
Jenny Mattison, of Cliffe Road, Grantham, says it has always been an ambition of hers to run the famous marathon and last year she was given the chance.
Jenny is raising money for Guide Dogs. Three years ago she was left partially sighted for a while after an illness and she is is a dog lover herself.
Jenny, 41, said: “On April 13 I will be running my first London Marathon in aid of The Guide Dogs. Until September last year, I hadn’t run before, but it has always been an ambition to run the marathon and this year I am lucky enough to take part. I have been training hard and have been out in all weathers!
She added: “The Guide Dogs is an extremely worthwhile cause and is very close to my heart. I need to raise £2,000 which I am well on the way to raising.”
