My Story

About this event: My 100k March Madness mission with team Awesome Foursome: NicNic, Chloe, Kaye and me! For the month: Our challenge was for each of us to run 100km by the end of March 2021. My motivation: April 2021 marks a year since Dad lost his battle with throat cancer. We were lucky, we had 5 years with Dad after his diagnosis thanks to great care and treatment options. Whilst caring for him, Mum also fought a silent struggle with her own breast cancer diagnosis, not telling any of us until her tumour removal was booked and she knew the longer prognosis. Early detection meant she was treated quickly, monitored regularly and now has the all clear. Without Cancer Research UK our story would be very different. I'm so grateful for every precious day they've given us together. My stats: 6/3 5.6km 7/3 5.3km 8/3 3.1km 10/3 6.6km 12/3 5.2km 13/3 8.6km 16/3 5.8km 18/3 5.5km 19/3 3.4km 20/3 8.6km 22/3 5.3km 24/3 3.4km 25/3 9.7km 28/3 9.8km + 4km 31/3 10.4km Total 100.2km from 6th -31st March
