In my infinite wisdom I've decided that I should run not one but three 5ks. Now, I know that 5k isn't a huge distance but for someone whose motto has always been 'you should only run if someone is chasing you', this is quite a big thing! The fact that I'm nearly 40 and need to be fitter could also have something to do with it.
Cancer has affected many people that I know and love but it's only recently that I've realised what a cruel and horrible disease it is when one of my close friends was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. It really is an ongoing battle that takes over every part of your life and if she can keep up the fight then I can definitely run 5k so please, even if it's just £1, throw some money my way and help make a difference to so many lives.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives .
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
