Those of you who know me well will know I'm not a runner and so running 5K is a big challenge for me although I have to admit that the training has been more enjoyable than I anticipated (really) and I feel confident that I will manage to run the whole 5K race. Maya (my 12 year old daughter) and I have trained together. She has done some running before and is certainly faster than I am. It remains to be seen whether she will take pity on me and run at my pace on the day. We are particularly running in memory of Barry Gregory, Maya's Grandad, who died in February this year after a long and brave fight with prostate cancer but as we run we will be thinking of all our friends and family members who have been affected by cancer. Please sponsor us if you can - anything you can give is going to a good cause. Thank you.
