I will be taking part in Shine Half Marathon on the 22 September 2018, and this walk is dedicated to the memory of a wonderful, loving caring mother who was known affectionately as Aunt Lou, Miss Louise or Granny and simply mom by me. She had a full and happy life which was tragically cut short with her short battle with Pancreatic Cancer which eventually won the fight over her life on the 13-03-2013 aged 78, it was a day that changed my life and my family’s forever. I am so thankful for her love and grateful she was in my life, and thankful that she was inspirational to myself and many others who knew her.
I have lost friends and a few family members to this terrible disease, and I know people in remission from the disease it seems everyone nowadays knows someone that has been affected by some form of cancer, so I decided to do my bit to help with the fight against cancers.
Although my mum was a light carrier in my life I cannot bring my mum back what I can do is support the works, research and fundraising that is taking place for an eventual cure to cancers which affects everyone not just the sufferers.
I do like walking and go to the gym occasionally. I have downloaded a walks app and this has helped to measure progress, route taken, length and dates of walks, it also measuring my progress as time goes on. My partner has joined me on my training walks and the company on the walks has helps greatly, making it more enjoyable and fun, it can also reduce stress increase energy and blood flow. Just doing a 20-30 minute walk can also be very helpful to your health and is an enjoyable way of seeing the area, you even notice things in the area you never noticed before, it is great fun. Please give generously
