If me challenging myself results in raising money towards a better tomorrow for those affected by cancer, I'm good with that.

In memory of

Pat Nice

First, this is for my Dad. In 2012, he was diagnosed with a type of blood cancer. He went on to beat the cancer itself, but succumbed to a stroke in late 2012, after being weakened by how ill he was. I think about him every day and I miss him immeasurably. I can only hope that I'm living my life to the fullest as he'd want me to.
This is also for my mum-in-law, who stood up to the big C and saw it off; reminding us all how precious life is and how lucky we are to have medicine as advanced as we do. I hope more and more people each year do this run for people who have won their fight.
Most people know running isn't my strong point. I like going to the gym and lifting things up and putting them back down again, so this is totally out of what I'd normally do but as my fitness improves, I want to keep trying to push myself.
