Story

We’re baaaaaack! After a year’s hiatus, me and Emily are taking part in another 10k Race for Life!

In 2015, we signed up for our first 10k, which unfortunately I had to do alone because Emily was rushed into hospital for emergency surgery. Talk about going to the extremes to get out of running. In 2016, at my most unfit, we ran the 10k together. Last year’s hiatus was mainly down to planning for Emily’s wedding and general life and work conflicts, but 2018 is the year of the comeback. Plus I’ve got fancy new trainers so I’m raring to go.

As a lot of you know, our dad was diasngosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in 2014, and in January 2018 it was finally decided he needed treatment. It’s going to be a tough year, but we’re determined to kick Cancer’s ass from all angles.

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m training to be a Personal Trainer this year. And if you know me you’ll also know that I HATE cardio, and I run a bit like I imagine a badger would. Emily, on the other hand, seems to be uncharacteristically graceful when she runs. SO THIS’LL BE FUN.

So dig deep. Cough up. Donate. It’s important, and it’s changing and saving lives.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k 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.
