I'm running the Great North Run in memory of my uncle, Colin Bailey, who died in October 2013 after fighting an especially aggressive form of brain cancer. Uncle Colin was fun, positive, active, and up for a challenge, so running the Great North Run along part of one of his favourite coastlines seemed a great way to celebrate his life. I had the idea of running the GNR in Uncle Colin's memory back in 2013 but unfortunately I haven't spent the last four years training! I'm hoping I can make up for lost time now though! In July the furthest I'd ever ran was five miles, now I'm up to ten, so I'm working really hard in the hope I can complete the race in a good time and raise as much as possible to help the fight against cancer.
