Well here I am about to do a half walking marathon. Wow who had thought it! I have always watched the London Marathon and been in total awe of the people that run it. I have had a few friends do it and always been impressed. I knew I could never do that but maybe I could do a half marathon walk so here I am about to take one on. I have been busy training and it didn't take me long to realise 13 miles is a long way - gulp! Anyway, I know I can do this mainly because all the shops will be shut by the time I start so I won't get distracted! :-) On a more serious note cancer affects 1 in 3 people so most of you will know someone affected by it. I know I do, so I am even more pleased that I am doing this. This disease is affecting far too many people and we need to find someway of stopping it in its tracks.
