Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and supported me along the journey so far - I'm so proud to be running the full 5k tomorrow and I've welled up a bit writing my back sign this morning as I'm so proud of my journey. In January is struggled to run for 1 minute, now I'm hoping to get my 5k in under 38 minutes whilst raising money for a great cause! We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and it's predicted that 1 in 2 of us will face a battle with cancer in our lifetime so for everyone who is battling, has battled or will battle this is for you. Today is a rest day ready for tomorrow but do check my facebook out tomorrow for the obligatory pre-race selfie! And if you haven't already and can donate a little something please do!
