I'm taking part to celebrate the completion of my young nephews cancer treatment. His parents refused to let cancer take over his childhood and he's our wild spark who lives life to the full.

Few of us are lucky enough to have our lives completely untouched by cancer. My children have never met their paternal grandfather due to this disease and in more recent years my young nephew was diagnosed to the shock of us all. Thankfully he rang the End of Treatment Bell on the 2nd August 2018.

I last took part in the Race for Life in 2005 in Southampton. My friend and I booked a long time in advance planning to run the course but I ended up waddling with a large baby bump! It is always a fabulous event to take part in, I have many good memories including the spectacle of seeing The Avenue completely covered in runners!

Even though these events have a positive vibe the moment that always gets me is when we take a minutes silence before the race begins. You stand there thinking about why you're running but then you start to notice the stories of the many people around you. And then you take in just how many people there are. Cancer touches all of our lives.

I have my race number - this is looking very real now! 6 weeks to race start and I have not completed any training other than lots of walking. I think that I had better have a look at all those 5km training plans out there.
