So Cait and I decided to take part in this year’s Race for Life in Chesterfield, in memory of her mum and my sister Carol who died last November. Losing someone to cancer is desperately hard...seeing their health slowly deteriorate is heartwrenching and you feel completely helpless.
Carol received amazing care from the staff in the hospitals she attended for her treatment over the 5 years of her illness. I think Carol would have proudly applauded her daughter Cait today (who finished in third place with ease!) and she might have even been quite impressed that I managed to run it all and finish in 40 minutes (even with a dodgy knee)...
