I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Phyllis Mabel Freezer

06 May 1930 - 07 Jan 2020

Last week my wonderful Nan lost her battle with cancer. Watching someone you love fade away makes you feel so impotent and powerless - there is very little you can do but sit by their side, waiting for them to draw their last breath and leave you. However, in the wake of her passing I have reflected and realised that there is something small that I can do: I can help raise money for Cancer Research UK by doing something that will certainly not involve any sitting by!

For those of you who have known me for a while, you will be well aware that sport was never my friend. I was the girl at school who hid in the woods during cross country or who feigned an injury to get out of PE. I have only recently started attempting to jog (roughly translated to plodding or trudging) and so taking on a 10k run seems unfathomable at the moment. But... I am determined to put myself through it and take on this beast of a challenge in aid of raising some cash for Cancer Research UK.

I would be hugely grateful if you could spare a thought for my poor old knees... and some pennies to support me as I face my high school fears in memory of my fabulous Nan.

Thank you friends. Kate.x

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.

After about a month break from regular running (due to illness and then laziness) I think I'm finally back in the zone. Back up to 6k yesterday and then today I pushed myself in the glorious sunshine to smash 8k. As May looms closer, it's time to get serious. Dig deep folks and send in your pennies. - Thinking of you every step Nan.x

I'm up to 7k now and getting closer to my 10k goal. This is also pretty impressive considering the knackering week I've had and a very broken night's sleep. Any donations are gratefully received. Thank you.x
