I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Nanny Kath

17 Oct 1950 - 21 Sep 2012

I've finally taken the plunge and signed up to do the Cancer Research Race for Life 5k Pretty Muddy this July!

I'm doing this in memory of my beloved nan, Kath - Nanny Kath, as she was to me. She was the most amazing woman, and I'm so lucky to have grown up with her as my best friend. She was an incredible role model to me, and I without doubt would not be the person I am today without her influence. I will never forget all of the amazing memories I have of spending time with her; gardening, trips to Cardiff and our silly sing alongs in the car, to name but a very small few. I miss her every single day, and after 6 years, it still isn't any easier - she was taken far, far too soon. I just really hope I'm making her proud in everything I do - I just wish she was here to see it.

However, not only am I doing this in memory of my nan, but also in memory of my auntie Jilly and my uncle Jeffrey. I have the fondest memories of both of their funny jokes and stories, and spending time down the caravan in Wisemann's Bridge with Jilly in the summer. I miss them both immensely.

I'd be so incredibly grateful if you'd be able to sponsor me or share my sponsor page, to help raise money for Cancer Research UK. Hopefully, the cure to this horrendous illness is around the corner, and any contribution no matter how small will help towards discovering it. Cancer takes far too many lives, and with your help, we can do our very best to stop it.

SHINGLES AND BAD KNEES - Hi all! The race is now 3 weeks away and I wanted to write a little update about things. Firstly, I'm still under the physio department in the hospital for my knees. Unfortunately, nothing that they've suggested to me has worked so far and my knees are as bad as ever when I do exercise. It's meant doing any training has been tough, I've had to have long breaks in between and it's been very off-putting. Secondly, and at this point I think it's the most important, is that I've come down with a case of shingles. It very much sucks! Thankfully I caught it in time for the anti-viral drugs, but symptoms of it may last up to 4 weeks. I should be all good to go ahead with the race, as I won't be contagious, but I still probably won't be feeling too great sadly. HOWEVER, neither of those things are going to stop me from doing the race of course! It just sadly means my performance probably won't be as good as I'd have hoped it would be...Onwards and upwards!

A little update about my training! I started an exercise program called P90 on the 4th of March with my flatmate and it was going really well (Picture below is from the first day!). However, after 10 days, I had to stop the program due to developing some pretty bad knee pain. I went to see the physio as I thought I had aggravated an old knee injury from last year. Unfortunately, I was told that, in fact, I have two maltracking knee caps (they don't run smoothly over the joint and are pulled off to the side) and I have suspected torn cartilage in my right knee, too. This has been a massive set back, but I'm now seeing the physio regularly and hoping I can improve my knee pain. I'm now gently easing myself back into training, but being mindful of my knees. Fingers crossed this time everything will run a little more smoothly with a bit of consideration and planning!
