I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise as much money as possible for a great cause.

As my family and friends will be aware, in 2018 I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. It was a tough year of treatment but my family and friends helped me get through the dark days. I worked as much as I could during the year and went back to work properly in Jan 2019. Though I was physically better, I hadn't realised how much my confidence had taken a battering. It has taken me another year to feel confident in myself and my body.

I have never run in my life, even at school I would rather do the obstacle race than any running race! But with the support of my assistant coach and son, Joseph and my very good friend, and senior coach, Zara, I started running just before Christmas. I completed the Couch to 5K to my utter amazement and then decided I needed to challenge myself again, hence I'm running this 5K.

Zara is running with me and Joseph has decided he would like to do a Muddy 5K.

We all want to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research, without whom 2018 might have been an awful lot worse.

Thank you so much for any donation you are able to give, it's all going to a very good cause.

NOTE: This page is for me, Louise, even though it says Ian. I messed up when setting it up :)
