So I know I've hardly mentioned it (ahem) but I'm running the London Marathon this year.
Quite selfishly I decided to do this purely because it's something I've always wanted to do.
But a lot of very kind people keep volunteering to sponsor me so here I am.
Anyone speaking to me recently knows that I have had trouble picking a charity to run for as there are so many worthwhile causes, how can I pick any one over all the others?
I'd kept hearing the statistic that one in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives. Whenever I hear this I always think of me and mum and always hope that if it has to, that it's me as I'd stand more chance of getting through it but I know it doesn't work like that.
But then on my Sunday run this week I suddenly realised that one in two could mean any of my friends or family. The thought that half the people I care about the most could be affected scared me more than anything.
Running 26.2 miles suddenly seems easy as I would gladly run to hell and back for those I care about the most.
So I'm running for Cancer Research UK to help all those suffering at the moment and in future, and in the hope that they can find cures and reduce those odds so that all the people we care about can live in a future where cancer is completely treatable.
