Now and again it's good to do something at the weekend that doesn't involve a hangover, so I am doing the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 8th October this year. I've done a few before, but I am most excited about this one because the route is pretty flat and I am (at heart) a REALLY lazy person. :-)
I tend to be rubbish at following through on an exercise regime unless I'm doing it for a charity, and Cancer Research is of course one that we can all relate to. My husband lost his mum Liz in 2008 after a long battle, and my dad passed away quickly from lung cancer in 2013. Since then, my sister-in-law has survived it, and most recently my amazing friend Bal has just finished 16 rounds of chemotherapy with such bravery, it makes 13 miles of running around a park look pretty easy.
Any donation is really appreciated, and it will really inspire me and Boris our dog (aka my running companion) to keep up with the training for the remaining 12 weeks!
