It may not seem a lot to run 10km and to train for it - these days everyone is running marathons and doing huge challenges. Even so, for me this is a challenge, I don't think I was made to be a runner! So far in my training I am up to 8km, so I'm nearly there! I'm not as fast as I used to be though!
It feels great to get out into the open air and just be free - free from the daily grind, and to focus on what matters - resilience, determination, and doing something positive. All of these qualities I have seen in my mum, and in my close friend, who has recently been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and is currently undergoing chemotherapy, whilst also being an amazing mummy to a 1 year old! Her positivity and generosity has taught me so much.
So if I can do just a little bit to help, then I will.
