I've never been one for exercise but could not turn down the chance to say 1. I did something for a worthy cause close to my heart and 2. I completed a marathon.
Now it is a 'running' joke (see what I did there) with those who know me that a marathon was something I would never do. It would have to be something epic for me to even consider this.
I have thought about how cancer has effected those close to me including my dear Nan Eileen, my aunt Phyl and my strong friends who are kicking cancer into touch right now. I wanted to take the opportunity to show what those people, both in person and memory mean to me and to do something to contribute in the ongoing battle against cancer. The research and treatments can only be funded by our support and funding.
Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Plus let's face it you will never see me do anything like this again, so really you are sponsoring a piece of history :)
